Success Stories

How it works

Delivering the city’s carbon neutral ambition will require collective action from everyone across Exeter.

If you have a project that’s tackling one of the four themes of our Net Zero Exeter 2030 Plan (Energy, Mobility, Sustainability and Capability) and wish to add yours, please provide information about your Success Story by clicking the button below.
