Let’s Celebrate Exeter’s #NetZeroHeroes!


Throughout the pandemic, residents and workers came together as a community, changing habits, buying local, pooling resources and helping each other out at a very local level.

In 2021 Exeter City Futures were inspired by individual action in our city, when we launched ‘Net Zero Heroes’ – a campaign that recognised and celebrated local people who are doing their bit and inspiring others to join the net zero journey.

We called on you to share the inspirational stories of those helping Exeter to become net zero.

Nominations are no longer open for Net Zero Heroes, but Exeter City Futures are a key partner for The Exeter Sustainability Awards, that celebrate organisations, businesses and individuals in Exeter.  Meet the finalists in our search for Net Zero Heroes below.
