Carbon Strategy – The Plan for Net Zero and Beyond
Gomde UK is relatively a small organisation yet with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche’s help and guidance, we have always looked to the long view, the bigger picture. Since 2010 we have worked steadily on various environmental initiatives, each one contributing to our key strategy regarding purposeful climate action.

We simply seek to do our best, joyfully embracing responsibility and play our part in contributing to a healthy future for current and future generations of humans, all other species and our planet. We are now in the remarkable position to announce plans for the Centre to become net zero by 2022.
Net Zero - The Plan
Our new plan is to increase seven fold our generation of solar energy and to store generated electricity, further reducing our dependency on fossil fuels.

Read the plan
A snap–shot of the net zero plan
What will it take to achieve net Zero?
* We need new infrastructure – the upgrade of electrical transformer and supply cables.
* The purchase and installation of new PV array, smart meter, battery and heat pumps.

The Benefits
* Carbon footprint into net zero
* Helps with the long-term financial viability of Gomde by reducing costs and generating income
* Gomde UK can become an inspirational real life example for sustainable living. Significantly, this influences behaviour and helps make wider change happen.

The Cost
Upgrade Electric Supply: £27,000
40kw Solar Panels Installed: £30,000
13 kw Battery: £8,500
Additional 4 Heat Pumps: £3,500
Total cost: £69,000

As the Buddha advised on all things, ‘check for yourselves’ – are the environmental benefits worth the investment?
A Proven Track Record
From the start we planned for the long term and with the environment in mind. This work includes the protection and development of our peatland carbon store. We have also sought to harvest energy equivalent to our needs from renewable resources and for all new building and renovation work to be highly energy efficient to reduce our heat load.

Track Record
You can help make the vision a reality!
We can make the difference together. There are moments in time when a contribution is key, NOW is that moment.

* Rejoice, share the plan and spread the word that Gomde UK can be net zero by 2022!
* Keep our vision in your thoughts and prayers. Make aspirations that we succeed.
* Come and volunteer – grow food, grow buildings, grow kindness, conserve the habitat.
* Make a financial contribution – even the win-win investments require sufficient financing so that they can be implemented.

Have no doubt any upfront financial contributions will make this aspiration a reality. Remember many drops fill a bucket and every single one will contribute to the change we know is necessary.
