The Devon Climate Emergency project is excited to announce that the finalised version of the Devon Carbon Plan was launched on Tuesday 27th September, after extensive collaboration with the Net Zero Task Force and the public.
The Devon Carbon Plan is the roadmap for how Devon will reach net-zero emissions by 2050 (at the latest). It has been built on detailed, ongoing assessments of Devon’s greenhouse gas emissions. Its publication follows a summer which was the joint hottest on record, where the impact of human-induced climate change has never been more apparent. The Plan’s launch marks the beginning of a new phase of action – it is crucial that everyone in Devon now works to implement the Plan.
Broadly speaking, emissions in Devon can be divided into five key sectors: economy and resources, energy supply, food, land and sea, transport, and the built environment. The Devon Carbon Plan outlines actions for how each of these sectors can reach net-zero emissions by 2050, and how people at every level can contribute – including individuals, communities, organisations and local policy makers.
You can find the Devon Carbon Plan on our website, including a Quick Read version and a Summary version. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and sign up to our monthly newsletter for ongoing updates about the launch, upcoming Q&As, and the next steps for the Devon Climate Emergency project. Finally, there will be a webinar which will review the Devon Carbon Plan in more depth, Wednesday 28th September from 6-7.30pm.
