Torbay Climate Partnership

The aim is to all work towards a Carbon Neutral Torbay

The Torbay Climate Partnership (TCP) was formed in 2021. There are many key organisations across Torbay working together. These are from all sectors including:

  • public
  • private
  • community
  • voluntary

The TCP was set up after our Community Conference in 2021. South Devon College hosted the conference and it focused on climate change.

The aim is to all work towards a Carbon Neutral Torbay.

Action plan

The TCP is working together to develop a Carbon Neutral Torbay Action Plan.

We held themed Climate Conversation events in May 2022. Our communities, businesses and young people put forward ideas on how we can become carbon neutral.

We then held a public event in July 2022 where we talked about these ideas.  

The first version of the Action Plan was consulted on from December 2022 to March 2023 and you can now read the Action plan summary  

On Wednesday 29 November 2023 we launched a new action plan and framework – A Greener Way For Our Bay – which is the Partnership’s plan for a healthier and happier Torbay. Everyone in the Bay is invited to have their say and there will be a series of events running up until March 2024.
