As the world sets targets moving us toward carbon neutrality, Community United Church of Christ making a plan to do our part.
The Carbon Neutral CUCC group is beginning our work to develop a step-by-step plan to become a carbon neutral church. Because there are no standardized definitions yet, we are considering what parts of our carbon footprint to include, and integrating the plan into other timelines at Community UCC for building maintenance and justice work. We’re considering what role, if any, carbon offsets should play. One of our goals in all of our Justice in a Changing Climate work is to share what we learn (both successes and failures) with other congregations, and to collaborate whenever possible. We also commit to preferencing those options which are economically just and work to correct environmental racism. Carbon Neutral CUCC is a new project and a great place to have an impact that reaches beyond the congregation.
