Sustainability Success Stories

Exeter’s Sustainability Goals

Green Spaces and Local Produce

A Net Zero Exeter will protect its natural ecosystems, favour local food supplies and sustainably manage its natural resources to combat the degradation of its local environment.

Clean Air

A Net Zero Exeter will have clean air through the reduction of pollutants from private cars and fossil fuels.

Efficient Resource Management

In a Net Zero Exeter, waste will be seen as a resource and recycled wherever possible; waste collection and deliveries will be made via operationally and energy-efficient means.

Regenerative Design

In a Net Zero Exeter, new building developments will go further than net-zero impact, generating more energy than they consume and embedding principles of regenerative design.

What Next?

We are urging everybody – organisations, staff, communities and residents – to play a vital role in the delivery of the city’s Net Zero Exeter 2030 Plan.
