London churches go carbon neutral with Climate Action Plans

The Church of England Diocese of London is pleased to announce that it is working to lower churches’ energy use and carbon footprint, as part of the Church of England’s national Shrinking the Footprint campaign.

The Climate Action Plans process has been devised as a way to drive down energy and carbon without extreme costs.

Using the Diocese’s Energy-saving Benchmarking model, each church participating is calculated a savings target. To help the churches meet their targets, Diocese of London provides a checklist of zero-cost efficiencies, simple management and user actions, which are used to create tailor made menus for each church to plan savings.

Churches can then sign up to renewable-energy supplier Good Energy or use the non profit-making company Charity Funding Solutions, which works with each organisation to negotiate the best tariff for their situations.

The final stage is to neutralise residual carbon emissions and emissions associated with non-renewable energy in ways to become carbon neutral.
