Synod takes steps towards sustainability for net zero by 2030

The Church of England will now examine requirements to reach the new target and draw up an action plan to deliver it

The Church of England’s General Synod has set new targets for the church to work to become net zero by 2030.

At a meeting in February, members voted in favour of a revised date encouraging all parts of the organisation to take action and increase efforts to reduce emissions - it will now examine requirements to reach the new target and draw up an action plan to deliver it.

The amended target brings the goal fifteen years forward from the original proposal of 2045.
