Daughters Corporate Stance on the Environment

Heeding Pope Francis’ call in Laudato Si: Care for our Common Home as well as the 2030 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals; the Daughters of Charity of the United States and Canada adopt a stance toward protecting and reviving the earth on a local, national, and global level. We will animate this stand by:

  • Educating ourselves on environmental issues affecting our local cities, North America and the World;
  • Fostering a consciousness of care for the environment within our local communities and ministries and implementing alternative behaviors whenever possible;
  • Participating in the Global Catholic Climate Movement and other partnerships to support changes in governmental, corporate and personal practices which impact the care of our “home”.
  • Supporting legislation that aims to protect the earth from further degradation and promotes environmentally friendly processes;
  • Praying that all people care for “Our Common Home” by living in solidarity with the Earth, its creatures and natural resources.
