Climate Emergency Declaration
In April 2021, the Governing Body of the Church in Wales declared a climate emergency and committed the Church to reach net zero carbon by 2030.
The motion, brought by the Church’s environmental group, CHASE (Church Action for Sustaining the Environment), was carried overwhelmingly.
The climate emergency challenges us to act now and show our concern for God’s creation in all our activities. As part of our response, the Representative Body of the Church has been tasked to devise an action plan for the Church, but of course, we do not have to wait for the plan to take action ourselves. Each diocese is raising awareness of the climate emergency and responding to the climate challenge.
Coverage of the Climate Emergency motion and debate at the Governing Body meeting is available on our Governing Body highlights page.
