Interfaith Power & Light is a network of organizations from around the country working on a faithful response to climate change. IPL partner groups educate and engage congregations and people of faith from all traditions and spiritualities about the moral and ethical mandate to address climate change.
IPL encourages congregations to address climate change by being better stewards of our resources and by bringing the voice of the faith community into the policy-making arena. We know that our actions alone cannot stem the tide of climate change – we need to enact public policies to advance clean energy and to limit carbon pollution. IPL groups are working to support policy change at the local, state, and national levels.
As people of faith, our mission includes being advocates for vulnerable people and communities that are the most heavily impacted by climate change. From air pollution to droughts to rising seas, it is poor people who are being hit first and worst by global warming. Our goal is to ensure that climate policies provide adaptation and mitigation support for communities domestically and internationally whose health and survival is at stake. We also aim to make sure that all people can participate in and benefit from the growing clean energy economy.
Mission: The mission of Interfaith Power & Light is to be faithful stewards of creation by responding to global warming through the promotion of energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. This campaign intends to protect the earth’s ecosystems, safeguard the health of all creation, and ensure sufficient, sustainable energy for all.
