Supporting over 16,000 cathedral and church buildings of The Church of England

Shrinking the Footprint



The Church of England's national environmental campaign exists to enable the whole Church to address – in faith, practice and mission – the issue of climate change.

'The present challenges of environment and economy, of human development and global poverty, can only be faced with extraordinary Christ-liberated courage.'

'Actions have to change for words to have effect'

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby
