Net Zero Action

Provincial Environment Group (PEG)

The Scottish Episcopal Church’s (SEC) approach to the urgent action needed across the whole of the church, contained within Net Zero Action Plan 2023-2030, was affirmed at General Synod 2023.

This built upon previous work and recommendations made since 2020, the background of which can be found here.

Whilst there are 10 sections, or ‘petals’, in the plan, the priority actions are focussed upon ensuring Energy Efficiency Improvements and Clean Energy within the SEC buildings. Encouraging work related Active Travel, and developing the way in which Net Zero considerations are built into the structures of the SEC are also important early actions.
