Pope Francis was clear in Laudato Si, saying that “technology based on the use of highly polluting fossil fuels needs to be progressively replaced without delay” (LS 165), and the Catholic Bishops from all continents followed up this directive by calling for “an end to the fossil fuel era… providing affordable, reliable and safe renewable energy access for all”.
As a response to these mandates, the Global Catholic Climate Movement launched a Catholic Divest-Reinvest program to encourage Catholic institutions to divest from fossil fuel companies and invest only on socially and ethically responsible companies that do not cause harm to people and the environment. After the first two Catholic joint divestment announcement of June and October, there will be third joint announcement on May 5, 2017. Join the call to learn more how you can participate in this exciting movement.
