At the churchwarden networking day on 30 June 2022, a panel of experts answered a variety of questions from churchwardens regarding their buildings and being eco-friendly.
The panel was:
John Beardmore - Energy Adviser to the Diocese of Derby (John@T4sLtd.co.uk)
Stella Collishaw - Community Action Officer (email@example.com)
Gareth Greenwood - Community Projects Development Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Nigel Sherratt - DAC and DMPC Secretary (email@example.com)
Jump to the individual questions (on YouTube):
6. How do churches measure their carbon footprint and the impact of potential changes to determine if they are making progress toward the net zero target? And what do the panel consider to be the high-value carbon savings in old, energy-inefficient buildings?
