On 14 July 2004 we signed up to the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change.
The declaration requires councils to develop an action plan to tackle climate change. By signing the agreement, we have committed ourselves to working with central government to contribute, at a local level, to deliver the UK Climate Change Programme.
As a result, Devon County Council published its first climate change strategy in 2005. The Climate Change Strategy and its action plan was revised in 2018 following a detailed review of local activity and the current policy environment by the Centre for Energy and the Environment
at Exeter University.
