Net Zero Exeter 2030
Exeter City Council has declared a climate emergency.
Like Exeter, many other cities and towns are aiming to be carbon neutral; but few have set out clear and deliverable plans to show how that will be reached.
The City Council has asked Exeter City Futures to work in partnership with the city to create a clear delivery roadmap.
This will set out the scale of the challenge, and the likely actions and investment required to ensure that Exeter is, and is in a position to remain, carbon neutral by 2030.
Exeter City Futures has already undertaken extensive research, analysis and engagement. Our Goals, and the features within them, provide a blueprint for net-zero Exeter. We have collated these into a single document that will form the input to our engagement activities, available below.
Many of the features of the plan present significant financial, technical, political, attitudinal and behavioural challenges. As we explore these challenges as a City we will begin to set out the roadmap. Together we can achieve our ambition.
Success will only be achieved through a genuinely collective effort. With everyone working closely together.
Reaching Net Zero will be a ten year journey, and it will begin on March 26, at a location in central Exeter. The Net Zero Exeter Mobilisation Summit itself will be a mix of formal presentations, discussions, the sharing of ideas, and also the start of a series of fringe events led by partners across the City.
The outputs from the engagement activities and summit will culminate in the Net-Zero Exeter plan that will be delivered to Exeter City Council.
