How will you ensure the local environment is protected?

We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment and delivering improvements wherever possible. The facility’s design will ensure that current and anticipated emissions standards are more than met.

North London Heat and Power Project was assessed not to cause any significant effects on protected conservation areas, including parts of the Lee Valley and Epping Forest, either alone or in combination with other future projects. View the technical findings of our assessments in the environment statement.

The NLHPP as a whole is an integral part of north London’s sustainable waste strategy. The project is expected to have a positive impact on the environment by diverting waste from landfill and increasing recycling rates in north London to 50% by delivering a sustainable hub for waste management.

It will save up to 215,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year compared to sending 700,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste to landfill every year.
