The Devon Climate Emergency Response Group, chaired by Phil Norrey (Devon County Council’s Chief Executive and Head of Paid Service) and comprising of public and private sector organisations, has appointed a Net-Zero Task Force to deliver a Devon Carbon Plan.
The Net-Zero Task Force is chaired by Professor Patrick Devine-Wright, a leading climate expert, and it includes experts drawn from environmental, economic, health and academic organisations.
The Task Force has today issued an invitation – a ‘call for evidence’ – to all Devon residents to submit their ideas about how Devon can reduce carbon emissions as quickly as possible. It will be conducting a series of hearings to help gather views, evidence and data that will be used to develop recommendations for the Devon Carbon Plan.
For your information, here is a link to the Net-Zero Task Force’s press announcement about the ‘call for evidence’. https://www.devonclimateemergency.org.uk/category/media-releases/
