Environment

  • Responsible stewardship of our planet as God's creation is embedded in all faith traditions. As member Sr. Patricia Daly put it so beautifully, "The earth is the primary revelation of the holy." Managing our resources in a way that ensures they will be available to future generations is the very definition of sustainability.

    The concept of “environmental justice”, which acknowledges that environmental impacts are felt most keenly by individuals and communities least able to mitigate against them, forms the basis of our engagements on environmental issues and has been a priority for ICCR members since our founding.
