This Commission came into being by the Decree of the 23rd August 2003, after the Diocesan Synod Document “Culture-Society-Church” suggested the setting up of an Environment Commission within the Pastoral Secretariat. Its aim is that of creating awareness of the responsibility and the ethics of safeguarding the environment, defining the policy/rules that should guide those responsible in the Church in environmental questions and offer technical and scientific suggestions to Church Authorities in specific matters concerning the environment.
