Churches’ demand for green energy doubles

Published: Tuesday 21st January 2020 at 15:21

More and more churches are trying to tackle climate change by reducing their carbon footprint and switching to green energy. Church Buying has seen the demand for its green energy contracts double since 2016.
The Big Church Switch, a green energy campaign by Church Buying, has been running for 4 years and has seen churches from a range of denominations join together and use energy suppliers that only put electricity into the national grid from 100% green sources that are 100% UK generated and non-nuclear.
Church Buying combines the buying power of all its churches to go out to suppliers and achieve best value on green energy contracts, including electricity and gas.
By acting together, faith and belief groups can show demand for green energy and send a powerful message to governments and businesses that they are prepared to lead the way.
To do this, those responsible for buying goods and services for their organisation need to sign up for the Big Church Switch before the end of January 2020 at www.churchbuying.com/big-church-switch
The services are open to all faith and belief groups.
We recognise that it is more crucial than ever to take action and switch to green energy. That’s why we’re proud to run the biggest fully green energy basket in the UK for all faith and belief groups for another year. Through this, we continue our mission to help those who are committed to making a difference in their communities.
We encourage churches to take into account both the cost to their finances and the cost to the environment when choosing their energy supplier, as part of their wider stewardship of resources.
