CRP are pleased to announce £500,000 funding from the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund Round 3 for our Clean Air Thames project.
The project will retrofit 11 river vessels, including tugs and passenger transport, cutting their emissions by up to 90 per cent.
Speaking about the funding, Tanya Ferry, Port of London Authority environment manager, said: “Protecting the environment is integral to our 2035 Thames Vision work to maximise use of the river for trade and recreation. Practical initiatives like this, working with businesses active up and down the river, from Teddington to the North Sea, are central to achieving our ambitious goals for maximising its social and economic potential.”
Susannah Wilks, Director at Cross River Partnership, said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with the Mayor of London, the City of London Corporation, the Port of London Authority and other organisations on retrofitting River Thames vessels to improve Air Quality for Londoners.”
Many thanks again to the City of London Corporation for fronting this bid.Mayor's Air Quality Fund
