Parish Energy Footprinting Tools and Audit
To help meet the 2030 Net Zero Carbon target agreed by the February General Synod, Blackburn parishes have been using the Energy Footprinting Tool to calculate their emissions. Entries through Parish Returns have now closed and the Diocesan Environmental Officer is analysing the Blackburn responses and collating feedback. Comments from all Dioceses will be used anonymously to modify the tool ready for the 2021 Parish Returns.
Meanwhile Parish Buying has opened up the 2020/21 Energy Audit Programme for registrations of interest from churches.
If you wish to apply for a subsidy for an audit, the deadline is 30 October 2020
