Interfaith Partnership for the Environment
Founded in 1986 as part of the United Nations Environment Programme, the Interfaith Partnership for the Environment (IPE) initially taught North American religious communities about environmental hazards by holding conferences and issuing publications and has now expanded to benefit a global network of faith groups united in support of the connection between religion and ecology. IPE's publications include Earth and Faith: A Book of Reflection for Action released in 2000 and formally launched during Earth Day celebrations in 2001. The group deals with a range of ecological issues, including climate change and wildlife conservation. Its members are clergy, politicians, and other civic leaders.
