Resource to highlight Exeter’s net zero work

Exeter City Council has announced the creation of a new resource that highlights what it is doing to tackling climate change, as well as how residents and businesses are able to help make a difference.

The page publishes details of the council’s own corporate carbon footprint, as well as key policies such as the Exeter City Futures Net Zero Exeter Plan. The resource was created by the council’s net zero team and features all of its net zero projects, across areas such as renewable energy, housing, transport, procurement and land use.

Cllr Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Climate Change, said:

“The council remains fully committed to net zero carbon and tackling climate change, and this new resource is an excellent guide for residents to see how we are doing.

“It also provides valuable access to information people need to help them make informed decisions about what they can do to help Exeter become a net zero carbon city, and to reduce their own carbon footprint and fight the cause of the climate emergency.”

Alongside the information about what the council is doing to reduce carbon emissions, the resource includes links to funding and grants that may be available for people, as well as ideas for leisure in the city. Information available to people visiting the resource will allow them to seek help and advice on what they can do to reduce their carbon emissions, with information and links enlightening the community about things such as the Climate Action Hub, Community Fridges and repair cafes in the city.

With the UK Government setting a net zero target of 2050, Exeter City Council have aimed higher and, following its declaration of a climate emergency in 2019, is aiming to achieve Net Zero Greenhouse Gas emissions for its own emissions through corporate activities by 2030.
