The Green Church label has been given a new version for Christian associations under the 1901 law


The Green Church label opens up to Christian associations under the 1901 law to accompany them on "the ecological path". 

Launched in 2017 in the wake of the Paris Conference, interreligious fasting for the climate and the encyclical Laudato si', the green church label brings together different Christian, Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox communities around a single objective: the ecological conversion of the Church in France.

Since June 24, 2022, the Green Church label has been endowed witha new version for Christian associations law 1901. The objective is to accompany these small or large structures so that they embark on the "ecological path".

On its website, the organization specifies that the primary goal of this label is to "start" the association and not performance, believing that a "first step, even small, but successful, can lead to another. and gradually lead to a more ambitious ecological conversion”.

There are five levels of labeling, the smallest is called “Graine de sennevé” and the highest, “Cèdre du Liban”. It is thanks to an eco-diagnosis, which is to be renewed each year and which aims to quantify the ecological actions, that the organization establishes its rating. After each eco-diagnosis comes an action plan to be implemented for the coming year.
