Mission Statement

We believe that climate change is the moral issue of our time. Our mission is to help diverse faith communities in the state of New York state actively respond to global warming as responsible stewards of creation. We help congregations reduce their carbon footprint, increase energy efficiency, use renewable energy, and educate their members on climate change. We also encourage people of faith to speak up at community, state and national levels about global warming, and to collaborate with other faith communities in these efforts.

New York Interfaith Power and Light (NYIPL) is an independent nonprofit (501C3) organization established in 2004. Over the past decade, we have grown to include more than has more than 110 member congregations located across the entire state. Every congregation or faith-based organization in New York is welcome to join.
