A new eNews service direct from Shrinking the Footprint will keep Church of England clergy up to date with news and views on greening their churches and communities.
Each edition of ‘StF’ eNews will have the latest information on resources, projects and campaigns designed to assist parishes in engaging with the Environment in healthy and sustainable ways. The first issue is on-line here.
Shrinking the Footprint is the Church of England’s national strategy to address the pressing issue of climate change. It aims to challenge, encourage and support the whole body of the Church to shrink its environmental footprint. The goal is to reduce the Church of England's carbon emissions to 80 per cent of current levels by 2050 (in line with UK government commitments), with an interim target of 42 per cent by 2020.
The Church of England National Energy Audit, already underway, is the first step. Later activities will look at biodiversity; waste; water management, and transport.
