Net Zero Carbon




What is Net Zero Carbon?

The Church of England defines Net Zero Carbon as the reduction as far as possible of all in-scope carbon emissions. The in-scope emmisions are the oil, gas and electricity we use in our buildings together with petrol and diesel transport.  It is the removal of an equivalent amount of carbon from the atmosphere for the remaining in-scope emissions by use of accredited offsetting schemes.
