Welcome to the Environment section of our website. You will find information and support here on a range of environmental matters, including working towards net zero carbon emissions, sustainability and biodiversity.

If you are thinking about any environmental or net zero work in your church, please get in touch. This won't commit you or your churches to doing anything, but will enable you to get a good idea of what resources are available and which approaches may be most suitable for your church context. 

You can email  environment@carlislediocese.org.uk or telephone 01768 807777.
