Letter on the environment from religious leaders

Faith and a green morality

Sir, On the day that the Prince of Wales launches "Accounting for Sustainability", we add our voices to the calls for urgent attention to and action on the environment. Research has shown that the future of our planet is at risk from environmental destruction. We are consuming today our children's tomorrow. There is no greater challenge for the present generation than securing the future of the planet.

As religious leaders from several different faiths, we can draw upon the teachings on environmental conservation in all our traditions. This is not just a matter of science, but about the moral obligations we have to future generations. While there are no easy answers, the religious voice provides a moral framework to address the issues of environmental destruction and sustainability.

We must act together - the faiths, politicians, business leaders and the public - with an approach towards the environment characterised by reverence and responsibility.
