Centrica reaches deal to supply renewable electricity, gas to Catholic Church

British Gas Ltd. has reached a deal to supply the Catholic Church's energy procurement division with renewable gas and electricity, in one of the largest combined green energy contracts in the U.K.

Inter-Diocesan Fuel Management Ltd, or IFM, covers 2,800 churches from 20 of the 22 dioceses in England and Wales. The volume to be supplied under the contract — which also includes more than 2,200 schools, care homes and community centers — is equivalent to the annual needs of more than 20,000 U.K. households.

"We're seeing more and more organisations looking to switch to both renewable gas and electricity, particularly given the recent net-zero commitment made by government," said Gab Barbaro, managing director of British Gas Business, in an Aug. 16 statement. "This contract demonstrates that it is becoming easier than ever to cut carbon emissions from our public and private sector buildings."

British Gas is owned by U.K. utility Centrica PLC.
