Eco-Justice Resolutions
from the Episcopal Church

Amendment to the Parochial Report

Proposed Resolution for the
76th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, USA, July 2009

Resolution B001: Amendment to the Parochial Report

Resolved, the House of ___________ concurring, That the 76th General Convention of the Episcopal Church amend the Parochial Report to include data on the annual energy consumption in total costs of electricity, oil, and gas of all Church properties.


EXPLANATION

The availability of such data will enable The Episcopal Church to calculate the Carbon Footprint of Church properties.

The availability will also enable Provinces, Dioceses, Deaneries, and local parishes to team up and take their aggregated energy demands into the marketplace. Working together, Episcopal churches can save energy, money, and the environment too.

 

This Resolution did not pass
