Environment Action

To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth (The fifth mark of Mission)

In February 2020, the General Synod of the Church of England resolved to become carbon neutral by 2030, an objective which Ely Cathedral is seeking to implement.

The Cathedral is also taking part in the A Rocha Eco Church Award Scheme and quicky achieved the Bronze Award, followed soon after by the Silver Award in February 2020.

Our Environment Group RENEW, members of the congregation, clergy, staff and wider community are focused on ‘Going for Gold’, alongside meeting General Synod’s target to become carbon ‘net zero’ by 2030.
