Environment and Climate Justice

The Diocese of Bristol is committed to addressing the environmental challenges that our community faces and in November 2019 declared a climate emergency. As part of this the Diocese is working towards achieving a net zero carbon position by 2030.

Climate change may be the most serious issue ever faced by human communities. All forms of life across the planet are threatened and the poorest nations are set to suffer most, that's why this is a justice issue.

You can read the diocesan Environment and Climate Justice Policy below. Behind this the Diocesan Board of Finance has adopted a full implementation plan and parishes are encouraged to consider how the policy can be implemented locally.
