The expert text “Ten theses on climate protection” has been prepared by the Commission for Society and Social Affairs and was adopted by the Permanent Council of the German Bishops’ Conference in January 2019. Based on a description of the need to protect the climate, also from a socio-ethical perspective, recommendations with specific implementation steps for climate protection are presented on the basis of economic, scientific and legal considerations. The text concludes with reflections regarding the exemplary character of the Church, also referring to the text “Responsibility for Creation as a Mission for the Church. Recommendations for Action on Ecology and Sustainable Development for the German (Arch-)Dioceses” which the German bishops have published recently.
