In Ecological Justice

Six key points within the Interfaith Climate Change Statement:

  • Urge governments to rapidly sign, ratify and implement the Paris Agreement, and to increase pledges to reduce emissions in line with keeping the global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels;
  • Insist on rapid emissions reduction and peaking by 2020, in order to keep the 1.5C goal within reach;
  • Strongly advocate for greater flows of finance, especially for adaptation and loss and damage;
  • Urge the swift phase out of all fossil fuel subsidies and a transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050;
  • Encourage faith communities to reduce emissions in their homes, workplaces and centres of worship and to support and stand in solidarity with communities already impacted by climate change; and
  • Call for fossil fuel divestment and reinvestment in renewables and low carbon solutions, including within our own communities, and/or by engaging companies on climate change.
