The Challenge

In July 2019, Exeter City Council declared a climate emergency and is now committed to making Exeter a carbon neutral City by 2030. This ambition aligns with the vision for the city and has potential to make a vital contribution to our planet and all its people.

With this commitment Exeter joins a growing list of Cities, local authorities and town councils who have made this commitment.

The challenge now is to identify the right programmes of engagement, innovation and investment that will deliver practical action and meet the ambition.

Our Solution

Global City Futures was appointed as a special advisor to Exeter City Council’s Chief Executive and Leader to manage the delivery of city transformation programme, Exeter City Futures.

This advisory and delivery role is ensuring that the Council understand the level of organisational and political change required (including resource capacity and finance) and supporting integration of cross-directorate activities to deliver their carbon neutral ambition.
