Eco Church and Net Zero Carbon 

This final webinar in our series looks at the links between Eco Church and Net Zero Carbon; how they are different and how they inter-connect. It will focus mainly on the ‘Buildings’ section of the Eco Church survey, since it is heating and lighting a church building which creates most of a church’s carbon footprint. The webinar will explain about free carbon footprinting tools available to churches.
