A Rocha UK have come up with an amazing and quite straightforward strategy for churches to assess their impact on the environment and the incentive to make changes to improve their sustainability. However, it must be recognised that it is the hard work dedication and hopeful vision of church leaders, their staff, parishioners and in lots of cases the wider community that make this vision a reality.
The Bishop of Norwich who is the Church of England’s Lead Bishop on the Environment and I must say I like his pulpit has spoken out against the Prime Minister’s statement on net zero targets still being met even if the government does absolutely nothing at all. The Bishop quite rightly points out that:
“The Prime Minister said we can meet our climate targets without taking the carbon reduction actions the Government had previously announced. We can’t. Decarbonisation must permeate every aspect of our lives.”
“Failing to acknowledge the urgency undermines progress, impacting business, investment, green job creation, and global influence.”
“We are already seeing the devastating effects of climate change, which is hitting the poorest people of the world hardest. We must act now to ensure a just transition, it is our moral duty to care for God’s creation”.
