As Quakers, we understand climate change to be a symptom of a greater challenge: how to live sustainably and justly on this earth.

In 2011 Quakers in Britain made a corporate commitment to become a low-carbon, sustainable community and we support each other to live out this commitment. We campaign for climate and energy justice, and to build a fairer economy which is not powered by fossil fuels.

Climate justice

Quakers are calling for climate justice. We want justice for those who have been unequally impacted by climate change and global climate action that stops this injustice continuing. We are working to build an energy and economic system that has equality, justice and sustainability at heart.

Fossil fuel divestment

We support Quakers to build the alternative energy and economic system, in which everyone has access to clean and affordable energy. We challenge the powers - like the fossil fuel industry - that block this change, and advocate to government for policies towards our vision.

Quakers in Britain were the first church in Britain to divest our centrally held money from fossil fuels. Local and area meetings are now doing the same. By divesting we help to question the morality of the fossil fuel industry, and challenge its power.

Living sustainably

We support each other to transform our lives to become low-carbon and sustainable, and to act in local community to do the same.

Our faith and sustainability

Quaker concern for the Earth and the well-being of all who live in it is not new. It is deeply rooted in our faith.
