Council staff in Exeter receive training in lowering our carbon footprint
Published: 9 November 2022
Staff and councillors at Exeter City Council are set to receive vital training on lowering carbon emissions as the local authority strives to become Net Zero Carbon by the year 2030.
Employees and all councillors will be given in-house training on carbon literacy so they can better understand the issues and challenges facing the Council over the coming years, and the role they can play.
The one-day course is being delivered by the Council’s Net Zero team at the Civic Centre.
The training aims to increase understanding of the climate emergency and the impacts of everyday activities on emissions.
Cllr Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Climate Change, said: “We all have our own individual parts to play in becoming Net Zero Carbon by 2030, so it’s vitally important that everyone understands the issues and challenges that we face over the coming years.
“Climate change is critical to our existence and if we don’t act now it will be too late. In Exeter we are playing our part and I’m proud of City Council staff and councillors for rising to the challenge.”
