Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy, Greater London Authority
Shirley Rodrigues was appointed as London Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy in October 2016. Previously, she oversaw a global climate change grants portfolio at the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) developing their cities and climate strategy and has devised and delivered new environmental policies and programs in London, nationally and internationally. She is now working to deliver the Mayor’s vision of making London greener, cleaner, and healthier through implementing his London Environment Strategy.
