Economy and business

The role of the ACT Economy and Business Group is to build relationships across the Teignbridge area and help create a regenerative low carbon economy. We aim to educate, communicate, and collaborate across the district, and to propose realistic policies and initiatives necessary to meeting Teignbridge District Council’s declared objective of being carbon neutral by 2025.

We need to learn/share best practice locally, regionally and nationally. We also need to bring our community with us if we are to be successful in delivering a sea-change in attitudes and behaviour for a modern economy. This work across the district seeks to be an important part of the puzzle for the green recovery we need to help us move through the covid crisis, the climate and ecological crises, and the economic changes needed to resolve them.

Group aims:

Educate our members and residents in Teignbridge through educational experiences, resources and events

Communicate and build a narrative for an inclusive planet friendly economy that meets the needs of local people 

Collaborate and engage with Teignbridge District Council, town and parish councils, community groups, businesses, organisations and residents in the district, and anyone who supports a regenerative economy

Develop projects that help ACT achieve the vision of a low carbon Teignbridge where residents are actively engaged in building communities and economies that are sustainable, resilient and healthy
