Our environmental pledge
We understand that social justice and ecological justice are connected. The poorest in our world are most vulnerable to the effects of environmental degradation.
We commit to operating in a responsible and sustainable way that protects and improves our environment and our communities.
We are grateful for the environment and web of life that we are part of and that sustains us.
We encourage our staff, participants, volunteers, friends, stakeholders and the Jesuit community to share our commitment to ecological and social justice.
How we enact our environmental pledge
We enact our environmental pledge through:
- our programs
- our environmental way of proceeding
- our international engagement with the Justice in Mining network.

Our programs connect with the natural and social environments in which they operate. They recognise that the natural world can play an important role in healing, and seek to nurture the relationship between people and their environment.
