Caritas advocates for environmental justice for present and future generations.

Our understanding that we are stewards of God’s creation, our solidarity with the poor, and our respect for the common good make the issue of environmental justice the responsibility of every person.
- New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference, 2006

Caritas published its foundational Pacific environment report Small yet strong: Voices from Oceania on the environment on St Francis Day – 4 October 2014. Read more here or read the full report here.

This is a forerunner to an annual ‘State of the environment in Oceania’ report which will be published each St Francis Day – the first of these will be launched on 4 October 2015.
