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.
Net Zero Exeter 2030 Plan
Over the past few months we have been holding workshops and engagement activities with residents, business and politicians to discuss the challenges to becoming carbon neutral by 2030.
Outputs from these activities culminate in our Net-Zero Exeter 2030 Plan, which has no wbeen delivered to Exeter City Council.
The Plan sets out a series of practical actions that local authorities, organisations and individuals can take, with associated carbon savings and cost, which Exeter will need to put in place in order to become net-zero carbon.
Success will only be achieved through a genuinely collective effort. With everyone working closely together.
Reaching Net Zero will be a ten year journey. Its planned formal launch, which was planned to take place on March 26, has had to be postponed, as a result of the coronavirus.
But the city’s determination to be carbon neutral by 2030 remains undiminished. We will be developing ways in which people, whether as individuals, or as representatives of businesses, clubs, communities or institutions, can find ways to play their part in the initiative.
These will be accessible via this site.
