Carbon Footprint

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

31. To ask the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, representing the Church Commissioners what steps the Commissioners are taking to reduce their carbon footprint. (151092)

The national Church institutions are committed to the Church’s Shrinking the Footprint campaign and are working hard to understand current energy consumption, reduce energy use in absolute terms and promote environmental best practice.

Footprint is a substantial and ambitious campaign which flows from the universal support for such action given by General Synod and the personal commitment of the Archbishop of Canterbury as evidenced by the recent award made to him by the Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group.
