CatholicAustraliaCaritas AustraliaCaritashttp://www.caritas.org.auPope Francis’ encyclical letter on human ecology, Laudato Si' (“Praise be to you”) – On the Care of Our Common Home, is the Church’s most profound clarion call yet for us all to be protectors of creation and the poor. The Encyclical calls for a new global solidarity, where all individuals, communities and governments have an essential part to play.
In that spirit of solidarity and in addition to the development work we do assisting communities to adapt to a warming planet, Caritas has committed to divest its investments in fossil fuels.
Caritas Australia is part of a global confederation operating in 190 countries. Our Church partner agencies in the Pacific and parts of Asia and Africa have been calling on wealthy countries to act to reduce pollution and make this world a safer place to live in. We see this action as part of our response to this call. - Nicholas Nelson, Caritas Australia's Director of Advocacy and Communications.

The money of our association has been placed in clean energy investments. Sébastien Dumont, vice-président of Oeko-logia

EN: "The commitment of Caritas Italy to divest from fossil fuels is framed by the promotion of the integral ecology Pope Francis refers to, and it is motivated by the conviction that everything in this world is interconnected. Thus "a true ecological approach always becomes a social approach; it must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor." (Laudato Si’ n. 49). Therefore this is primarily a commitment of charity, a reponse to the statutory mandate to remove the causes of poverty in order to promote a Church that is a "bridge," situated and embodied in different stories, territories and cultures, able of living the mission as a diakonìa, as selfless service to every human person and group, with particular attention to two great fragilities of today's world: the poor and the environment.”- Don Francesco Soddu, Director of Italian Caritas"
IT: “L’impegno di Caritas Italiana nel disinvestimento dai combustibili fossili si colloca nel solco di quell’ecologia integrale richiamata più volte da Papa Francesco e muove dalla convinzione che nel mondo tutto è intimamente connesso. Così “un vero approccio ecologico diventa sempre un approccio sociale, che deve integrare la giustizia nelle discussioni sull’ambiente, per ascoltare tanto il grido della terra quanto il grido dei poveri” (Laudato Si’ n. 49). Un impegno dunque in primis di carità, che risponde al mandato statutario di rimuovere le cause della povertà per essere parte attiva di una Chiesa “ponte”, situata e incarnata in storie, territori e culture diverse, capace di vivere la missione come diakonìa, come servizio disinteressato a ogni persona e gruppo umano, con particolare attenzione a due grandi fragilità del mondo odierno: i poveri e l’ambiente”. - Don Francesco Soddu, Direttore di Caritas Italiana

CatholicItalyMission Congregation of the Servants of the Holy Spirit (SSpS)Religious Orderhttps://www.worldssps.org/For us SSpS sisters, our commitment to justice for creation and all life, has prompted us to take certain decisions. We engage in ministries that protect and promote the life and well being of all creation. We strongly support and promote the Encyclical Laudato Si’ - on care for our common home. It is the urgent appeal of Pope Francis in the face of the pressing environmental challenges to all persons living on our earth. It calls for a dialogue on how we can protect our common home and how together we can implement ways of sustainable and integrated development. This requires a continuous “ecological conversion”.

Secondly, we as the Church have to advocate for alternative sources of energy. Thirdly to safe guard the environment at our time it is our duty to take care of the future generations to come. The exploitation of the mother earth is not at tandem to the usefulness as intended by the creator. Amecea condemns all activities of mining and exploitation that are happening in the region and more especially by the multinational companies - Fr.
