Devon Climate Emergency: Devon Carbon Plan process is launched – residents called on to give their ideas

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’.

A new Devon Climate Emergency website, launched today, detailing the work of the Devon Climate Emergency Response Group and the Net-Zero Task Force, can be viewed here,
