The University of Exeter have recently published their ‘Greenhouse Gas Monitoring’ document commissioned by Exeter City Council to establish a baseline greenhouse gas inventory for the city.
The report by The Centre for Energy and Environment shows that delivering net zero in 2030 requires a much greater reduction in emissions, with investment, infrastructure and collaboration from all sectors urgently needed.
Exeter City Futures’ envisage that this document will guide our actions over the next 8 years as we support the city to their aim of carbon neutrality for 2030, bringing together members of our board – the University of Exeter, Exeter City Council, Exeter College, Devon County Council, Exeter College and the RD&E NHS Trust.
You will find it here in draft format as it undergoes a signing off process by the Council’s scrutiny committee and Executive board.
Karime Hassan, CEO of Exeter City Futures presented the findings to Exeter City Council.
The report covers emissions for eight sectors: power, buildings, industry, transport agriculture land use, waste and fluorinated gases. The inventory is for territorial emissions, those that arise within the boundaries of the city and are more in control of people living, working and visiting the city.
