London’s Bishops and Archdeacons back “The Big One” climate change protest

Ahead of ‘The Big One’ climate change protest next month, the Bishops and Archdeacons of the Diocese of London have released a statement in support of the global fight against climate change. Earlier this year, the Diocese of London Bishop’s Council voted to disinvest from fossil fuels. Whilst the UK Government has established an aim to become net zero by 2050, the Church of England, and the Diocese of London, are aiming for net zero 20 years sooner – by 2030. The Diocese of London’s leaders are now reaffirming this commitment, highlighting the Church’s solidarity with communities across the globe impacted by climate change and the work it is doing to combat carbon emissions and move away from using fossil fuels.
“As stewards of God’s creation, we have a responsibility to doing whatever we can to act sustainably and protect the world we live in. Across the globe, we are already seeing the impact of climate change affecting lives and communities, particularly in some of the poorest parts of the world. Motivated by our own faith and our care for all of God’s people, we are committed here in London to reducing our carbon emissions as far and as fast as possible.” Bishop Sarah
