Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Chelmsford Diocese has had an environmental policy for almost twenty years.

As we progress with our Carbon Free 2030 project, we aim to review other diocesan policies to ensure they meet the aim of reducing carbon to net zero within the next decade.


Key contacts

Other than with the diocesan and area bishops, overall responsibility for environmental issues within the diocese rest with the Archdeacon of Chelmsford, Ven. Elizabeth Snowden.

Day-to-day responsibility for the Carbon Free 2030 project and general environmental enquiries rests with the Diocesan Environmental Officer, Revd. James Gilder, who also works in parish.  

If you would like to publicise an upcoming environmental event, or share a good news story, please contact the Diocesan Comms Team

Diocesan Environmental group

The Diocese has an active Environmental Group, which meets several times per year to discuss pertinent issues, plan events and provide feedback to the Environmental Officer. 

Contact Archdeacon Elizabeth for more details.
