The Church Commissioners for England, have committed to operating a net zero carbon building portfolio by 2030, just 10 short years away. This is in line with the most ambitions science-based targets for CO2 emissions not least because the Church Commissioners are responsible for over 16,000 church buildings in England, with 12,500 listed by Historic England.
