THE 6 KEY POINTS WITHIN THE INTERFAITH CLIMATE CHANGE STATEMENT

Urge governments to rapidly sign, ratify and implement the Paris Agreement, and to increase pledges to reduce emissions in line with keeping the global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels

Insist on rapid emissions reduction and peaking by 2020, in order to keep the 1.5C goal within reach

Strongly advocate for greater flows of finance, especially for adaptation and loss and damage

Urge the swift phase out of all fossil fuel subsidies and a transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050

Encourage faith communities to reduce emissions in their homes, workplaces and centres of worship and to support and stand in solidarity with communities already impacted by climate change

Call for fossil fuel divestment and reinvestment in renewables, including within our own communities
