Towards zero

Reaching Net Zero Emissions by 2040

The Uniting Church believes that God is the Creator of the world in which we live and move and have our being, and that God calls us into a particular relationship with the rest of creation – a relationship of mutuality and interdependence which seeks the reconciliation of all creation with God.

Right now, our planet is experiencing a climate crisis. The Uniting Church calls for urgent action towards a more sustainable planet and support for those most impacted
