Routemap to Net Zero

We are working to reduce the carbon footprint of the Cathedral and its activities in support of the Church of England's Routemap to Net Zero.

Carlisle Cathedral

More information about the Church of England’s Routemap to Net Zero can be found here.

Our power is supplied through a green tariff: all our electricity comes from renewable sources. We monitor our consumption of gas and electricity to track progress and motivate next steps. Almost all the Cathedral properties are lit with LED lightbulbs. We are currently undergoing a feasibility study of the remaining halogen bulbs in the Cathedral building to see if it is possible to transform the current technology to LED, thus reducing the carbon footprint of installing a brand new system.
