Devon County Council has declared a climate emergency. We have committed to facilitating the reduction of Devon’s carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050 at the latest and improving the environment’s and our communities’ resilience to climate change.  We are leading a partnership to make a Devon Carbon Plan and a Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Adaptation Plan in response to the Devon Climate Emergency

The Council reports its carbon footprint each year and has a target and a plan to become net-zero carbon by 2030, including emissions from its purchasing of goods and services.

These pages provide hints and tips about how we can all play our part in addressing the climate emergency.
