Basic to the approach of our company is the understanding that climate change is a real and present crisis dangerously accelerated by human activity since the Industrial Revolution began in 1750.
A Moral Issue
The moral tide of our age pushes us in two directions. One is to uplift the living standards of the billions mired in poverty, struggling each day to survive. The other is to preserve the integrity and sustaining capacity of the planet. A rapid transition to an economy powered by clean and renewable sources of energy, with transfers of the technology to developing countries, would enable us to accomplish both, to combine social justice with ecological sustainability.
Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, “Climate Change Is a Moral Issue”
When there is no ego or selfishness, there is nothing that will destroy nature, nothing that will exploit and abuse nature. Then the external, physical aspect of nature will be able to conserve itself automatically.
Buddhadasa, “Conserving the Inner Ecology”
We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet.
