Financing a Liveable Future: How Your Faith Can Invest in Climate Action

 

This Earth Day, Operation Noah and FaithInvest are thrilled to announce the launch of a new video series, “Financing a Liveable Future.” This exciting project empowers faith-based institutions to put their values into action by investing in climate solutions!

More than Reflection, It’s Action

Earth Day is a time to reflect on our responsibility as Christians to care for God’s creation. This year, we’re going beyond reflection and offering a practical roadmap. “Financing a Liveable Future” demonstrates how sustainable investing aligns perfectly with core Christian principles of stewardship and environmental care. The series begins with a powerful keynote speech by Dr. Lorna Gold, CEO of FaithInvest, about the urgency of investing in solutions that address the climate crisis. 

Inspiring Stories, Powerful Impact

The series features inspiring case studies from faith communities around the world who are already making a difference through climate-conscious investing. The series features Lorna Stuttaford and David Marett from the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, a global religious order, who share their journey of investing for impact. There’s also an accompanying guide to the videos available to download.

Your Voice Matters: Elections and Beyond

With elections approaching, the climate crisis will undoubtedly be a key issue. Churches hold significant financial resources, and this series empowers you to use those resources to shape a future focused on climate action. By investing in climate solutions, we can send a clear message to policymakers and businesses about the values we hold dear.

Beyond Divestment: Faith in Action

While divestment from fossil fuels remains an important strategy, “Financing a Liveable Future” emphasizes the power of reinvestment. Mathew Jensen, CFA, FaithInvest’s Director of Faith-Consistent Investing, delves into the “Good Intentions” report and guides viewers through the process of developing faith-consistent finance.  It provides practical steps for putting your faith into action through impactful investments.

Global Impact, Local Action

Climate change requires a global response, but real change often starts at the local level.  The series highlights inspiring stories of faith communities driving positive local change through climate-conscious investment decisions.

Equipping You to Make a Difference

With “Financing a Liveable Future,” Operation Noah and FaithInvest aim to equip YOU, the Christian climate champion, with the knowledge and resources you need to make a positive impact on the planet.  Investment experts, including Mike Sturgess, Chairman of Truro Diocesan Board of Finance, and Paul Jaffe, Head of Sustainability for the Church Commissioners for England, share their experiences and practical advice for navigating climate-aligned investments. See how these communities are building a more just and sustainable future, not just for themselves, but for generations to come.

Let’s move beyond reflection and turn our faith into action!  Watch the video series today and start empowering your faith community to build a more just and sustainable future.
