Energy Footprint Tool


Before you can start on the journey to Net Zero, you will need to know your church's carbon emissions. The Energy Footprint Tool is part of the Church of England's Online Parish Returns system. The tool can be used annually to submit information on the energy use of your church, using electricity and gas/oil bills. You can find more information on the Energy Footprint Tool by clicking here.
