  • Action for Creationtide: Energy Footprint Tool

    New data reveals that more than 3,000 churches are using the new Church of England Energy Footprint Tool to understand their carbon footprint and reduce their energy use and costs. The tool also helps the national church to measure progress towards the Church of England goal of “net carbon zero” by 2030.

    Churches are asked as part of their annual statistics return to include information from their energy bills and some basic dimensions for their church buildings.
