Partner work and individual climate declarations

The Devon Climate Emergency Response Group (DCERG) is made up of senior officers of about 25 organisations including councils, emergency services, businesses and voluntary organisations who are working on the Devon wide climate emergency response. The full list of members is available here.

As well as supporting the Devon wide response, many of these organisations have declared their own climate emergencies and are working to reduce their own organisational emissions.
