How you can get involved

Changing your behaviour not only helps reduce your carbon footprint but can help encourage others to adopt more sustainable habits!

Community groups and local councils are in a great position to engage people on the ground and raise awareness of the climate crisis.

Organisations have an important role to play in reducing emissions and contributing towards a net-zero Devon.

A brief summary of the changes that are needed to create a net-zero Devon.

The Devon Carbon Plan in 8 points
Fossil fuels no longer an energy source, energy consumption is minimal, community action for a net-zero Devon, carbon captured from fuels burnt
Escaping greenhouse gas emissions are minimised, develop a resilient economy, resources are used more circularly, maximise natural carbon storage

Who we are

A range of public, private, and voluntary organisations from across Devon came together on 22nd May 2019 to form the Devon Climate Emergency Response Group.

The project is aiming to create a resilient, net-zero carbon Devon – where people and nature thrive.

Achieving this will require collaborative action from everyone across Devon.
