Westminster seeks to align itself with the commitment which the United Church of Canada made to The Paris Agreement of 2016. This requires reducing our carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.
Westminster’s policy, approved in 2020, requires all decisions and subsequent actions taken by staff, committees and interest groups to be considered through the lens of climate disruption mitigation.
The committee’s mission is to engage the congregation, both individually and collectively, in the mitigation of climate disruption and to facilitate other faith groups to do the same.
It is also to act as a resource to Council, committees and interest groups as they develop and implement annual goal plans that will focus their activities.
All who are concerned about this global issue are welcome to join the committee.
