Working together to achieve net zero

Net zero means no longer adding to the total amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.


We currently find ourselves in a green revolution as the need for energy efficiency and sustainability becomes ever more urgent.


In Plymouth we are achieving this by focusing on our four priority areas: transport, buildings, heat and power, consumption and, waste and behaviour change.


So how can we achieve a green economy where economic growth is balanced with environmental health and community wellbeing?

1. Sustainable growth - managing resources responsibly so they last for future generations.

2. Green skills - providing people with the abilities and knowledge to create action that will address environmental problems.

3. Green jobs - jobs created to help the environment, focusing on projects and tasks.
