Your Church’s Energy Footprint – Why it’s important.

In recent E-Bulletins we’ve been asking all churches across the Diocese of Chester to complete a short Energy Footprint survey. We are grateful to the churches that have already completed the survey and would like to encourage those still yet to participate.

Why is it important to complete the Energy Footprint survey? 
The diocese has committed to be carbon neutral by 2030. To achieve this goal, it’s crucial that we can track our progress along the way. Measuring our starting point is a vitally important part of the monitoring process - The Energy Footprint Survey will provide us with the baseline to help us navigate towards carbon neutrality.

Small steps matter
‘Carbon Neutral by 2030’ is a huge undertaking and daunting for many. 
Sheena Wilson, Buildings for Mission Advisor (pictured right) says; “The aspiration for Net Zero Carbon 30 is a huge challenge, but we can get there if we work together one small step at a time.”
It’s easy!

The Energy Footprint survey requires some basic information, mostly obtained from your energy bills together with the hours that the building is open, the footprint area of the building and the number of people using the church per week. The cut-off date for submission of the information is 31 July.  Please complete your survey as soon as you can to help towards achieving this ambitious goal.
