Faith-based organisations (FBO) have been active in promoting climate action, campaigning and diffusing information about climate change and innovating for sustainable consumption and production. They also possess great potential in mobilising more members of civil society and government bodies to take action and improve their commitments to sustainable living. FBOs are perfectly positioned to assume a more primary role in governing the relationship between mankind and the environment. Faith literature and principles are embedded with the concepts of morality, ethics and reciprocity that can be channelled to mandate environmental protection and climate action. The structures of faiths allow for the integration of considerations for climate action and its various elements such as the water ecosystems, animals, flora and our consumption that contribute to the degradation of the aforementioned. In addition, faith spaces have a high standing in society and are well trusted, often holding very close relationships with factions of society. They therefore are able to take up the large responsibility of guiding humankind in a direction of sustainable living.
