Net Zero Zone

What is the Net Zero Zone?

The Church of England has committed to reach net zero for its buildings and transport by 2030, and the Diocese of Oxford has pledged to reach a wider net zero target by 2035. That means that by 2035 we need to have reduced our emissions as much as possible across all our activities – and to be offsetting what we can’t reduce. When we get to this point, we’ll no longer be contributing to climate change. Now that’s a goal worth aiming for!

Already churches, schools and individuals are working to turn the pledge into a reality. We have created a Parish Pathway to Net Zero programme so that any church that wants it can get help on their journey, and we’re also working with schools and others throughout the Diocese. Get started on your own Parish Pathway, and check out the resources table below.
