Find your Diocesan Environmental Officer

Welcome to the Church of England's national environmental campaign aimed at helping the Church's 42 dioceses and 16,000 churches reduce their carbon footprint.

The Church is committed to a carbon reduction target of 80% by 2050, with an interim target of 42% by 2020.

"In the 21st century, in an interconnected world, practicing love of neighbours means that we are committed to mitigate the effects of climate change which will fall disproportionately on the poor and vulnerable in the world."

The Bishop of London, the Rt Revd and Rt Hon Richard Chartres

Shrinking the Footprint is a cross divisional campaign involving both the Cathedral and Church Buildings Division and Mission and Public Affairs
