Amend Parochial Report
Committee: 20 – Environmental Stewardship & Care of Creation
Summary: “Include data on the annual consumption and costs of electricity, oil, and gas of all church properties” in church statistics, in order to identify church consumption patterns and then leverage the church’s better-understood role as a consumer in the energy market. Proposed by Province 1.
The Episcopal News Service reported that two other, non-environmental resolutions related to the parochial report were controversial. Many parishes already consider completing the annual report a cumbersome process, especially small parishes that rely on volunteers to collect their data, and may object to any additional requirements, whether environmental or otherwise.
Final Status: Not adopted.
