Why We Exist

Mission Statement

The mission of Interfaith Power & Light (IPL) is to be faithful stewards of Creation by responding to global warming through the promotion of energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy.

Basic Theory of Human-Caused Climate Change

The evidence is clear: The earth is warming and human activities are responsible. It’s not just climate scientists who claim this; every major scientific organization worldwide agrees. What does your faith have to say on the subject? Read Official Denominational Statements on Global Warming from Yale’s Forum on Religion and Ecology.

National IPL Connection

For 16 years, IPL has been helping congregations address global warming by being better stewards of energy. The campaign has a track record of tangible results: shrinking carbon footprints and educating hundreds of thousands of people in the pews about the important role of people of faith in addressing this most challenging issue.

In addition to practicing energy stewardship in our facilities, IPL brings the voice of the faith community into the policy-making arena. We know that our actions alone cannot stem the tide of climate change – we need to enact public policies to advance clean energy and to limit carbon pollution. IPL is working to support policy change at the local, state, and national levels.
