 ENERGY CARBON FOOTPRINT

Sun over Tower.jpg

 We have since 2015 been actively recording our energy carbon footprint and taking measures to reduce it in support of both the Church of England's Shrinking the Footprint initiative and our own Eco Church pledge (member since the end of 2016).

Initially the footprint is focused on gas and electricity use at our two main buildings, the Cathedral and Cathedral House – which together make up the bulk of our energy consumption. There are two elements to our target; our Eco Church pledge to reduce gross emissions by 5% year on year commencing 2017, and our 2020 voluntary target of a 20% gross emissions reduction against a 2013 base year footprint.
