Environment and Sustainability

Responding to the climate and biodiversity crisis is central to our mission. These pages detail some of ways that churches can get involved and the plethora of resources out there.

Net Zero Carbon by 2030

General Synod voted in February 2020 for the whole of the Church of England to achieve net zero carbon by 2030. The vote recognised that the global climate emergency is a crisis for God’s creation and a fundamental injustice. The Synod asked for a plan to be made, setting out how to get to net zero carbon. That plan is called the Routemap. It was written by the Net Zero Carbon sub-committee of the national Environmental Working Group and went to consultation from October 2021 to February 2022 and the responses received shaped the final version. It was approved by General Synod in July 2022.
