Net Zero in focus

by Michael Ford last modified 13 Nov, 2020 10:07 PM

The Church of England has clarified the scope and definition of Net Zero, following General Synod’s pledge to achieve it by 2030.

Detail was shared with General Synod members as papers were published for the forthcoming meeting of General Synod, the first full meeting of the Synod to be held remotely.

These environmental publications follow a February 2020 motion setting the Church a target of cutting its carbon emissions year-on-year to reach Net Zero emissions by 2030.

Among other Agenda items, Synod will also debate the recent IICSA report endorsing a motion to urgently implement its recommendations, a response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Archbishops’ Council budget and proposals for apportionment for 2021.

In legislative business, the Cathedrals Measure will receive its final drafting and approval and there will also be a number of items of Safeguarding legislation as the Church continues its work to strengthen its procedures in this area.
