La emergencia climática representa la amenaza más peligrosa para la vida de los niños y las niñas y la supervivencia de las generaciones futuras. Los combustibles fósiles –carbón, petróleo y gas– son, con diferencia, los que contribuyen más significativamente a la emergencia climática mundial, ya que suponen más del 75 % de las emisiones mundiales de gases de efecto invernadero y casi el 90 % de todas las emisiones de dióxido de carbono (CO2). Por este motivo, detener nuevas inversiones en la expansión de los combustibles fósiles es una de las maneras más eficaces de agilizar las soluciones climáticas y salvar las vidas de los niños.

Retten von Kinderleben

Die Klimakrise ist sie größte Gefahr für Kinderleben und für das Überleben künftiger Generationen. Fossile Brennstoffe – Kohle, Erdöl und Erdgas – tragen mit Abstand am meisten zur Klimakrise bei. Sie machen 75% der weltweiten Treibhausgasemissionen und beinahe 90 % aller Emissionen von Kohlendioxid (CO2) aus. Eine der wirkungsvollsten Möglichkeiten, Lösungen für die Klimakrise voranzutreiben und Kinderleben zu retten, ist daher, neue Investitionen in den Ausbau fossiler Brennstoffprojekte einzustellen.

L’urgence climatique fait planer la pire des menaces sur la vie des enfants et la survie des générations futures. Les énergies fossiles (le charbon, le pétrole et le gaz naturel) sont ce qui contribue le plus à l’urgence climatique sur notre planète, et de loin : elles représentent plus de 75 % des émissions de gaz à effet de serre dans le monde, et près de 90 % de toutes les émissions de dioxyde de carbone (CO2). Par conséquent, l’un des moyens les plus efficaces d’accélérer les solutions climatiques et, ainsi, de sauver la vie des enfants consiste à suspendre les nouveaux investissements dans l’expansion des énergies fossiles.

Save Children's Lives

Responsible Banking Survival Guide

The climate emergency represents the most dangerous threat to children’s lives and the survival of future generations. Fossil fuels – coal, oil and gas – are by far the most significant contributor to the global climate emergency, accounting for over 75 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions and nearly 90 per cent of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Therefore, halting new investments in fossil fuel expansion is one of the most powerful ways to accelerate climate solutions and save children’s lives.
This document provides concise guidelines for using the investment potential of individuals, organisations and churches to stop investment in fossil fuels.

Webinar will provide new insights on climate-responsible banking

A webinar entitled “Climate-Responsible Banking: A Moral Imperative towards Children“ on 3 July will increase awareness of how investments into new fossil fuel expansion imperil the wellbeing of children, youth, and future generations, to advance actions of faith-based actors and hold accountable those investing in fossil fuels.

Statement on Ecumenical Solidarity with Sudan

It has been more than a year since large-scale fighting broke out between the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF). This conflict between two former allies in the 2021 military coup that toppled the previous transitional government has almost destroyed a country whose people had already suffered through many years of protracted and multidimensional crises.
