ECOJESUIT

A Global Advocacy for Climate Justice

As humanity continues to reckon with the impact of the pandemic almost two years after, climate negotiations are sitting in the corner for the past five years, bringing the world to an ecological, economic, and social tipping point. Global commitments are leading us to a path of 3°C of warming, far from the 1.5°C limit that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Reporturgently recommends. And while there is a global health crisis, there is also clearly a global climate emergency that threatens the balance of our household, the oikosThis is a call for a steadfast and hope-filled engagement in COP26.

COP26: Jesuits call for Ecological Conversion

Jesuits, through Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat – Rome and Ecojesuit, recognize the wrongs that we as human beings have committed against the creation and the planet earth. We call for conversion and invite everyone, especially our leaders not only to make promises and make statements of commitment, but begin responsible action for change.

Ecojesuit@COP26

Information on the Ecojesuit COP26 initiative is available through this brochure in EnglishFrench, and Spanish.

Climate policies and solutions are being discussed, and the call for greater action is focused on these five key points:

Finalizing the Paris Agreement Rulebook that sets rules and guidelines for carbon markets, accounting, and other measures

Ratcheting up Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), and the climate ambition of every country to achieve net-zero targets

Mobilizing $100 billion yearly in climate finance to developing countries, and shifting to policies for more sustainable economies like the European Green Deal

Highlighting corporate accountability, and enabling means for ‘Loss and Damage’ through the Warsaw International Mechanism

Integrating nature-based solutions in the Paris Agreement Rulebook that have the potential to deliver up to 37% of the cost-effective mitigation required by 2030
