Jesuits call on companies to address climate change

  • 8 June 2016

Stephen Power, SJ, Treasurer for the British Province of Jesuits, and Chair of the Jesuit Missions Management Board, has signed an open letter addressed to the heads of the world’s largest publicly listed fossil fuel companies, which has appeared in a recent edition of the Financial Times. The letter, signed by leading members of civil society from around the world, calls on these firms to support the Paris Agreement, and to put limiting climate change to at the heart of their business plans for the future.

Jesuit Missions actively promotes the issue of climate change following on from Laudato Si, Pope Francis’ encyclical urging us to take responsibilty for our planet, and is part of the Jesuits in Mining advocacy network.
