Our Mission

The mission of WVIPL is to be faithful stewards of Creation by responding to climate change through the promotion of renewable and efficient energy and just environmental practices. Our intention is to protect the earth’s ecosystems, safeguard the health of all Creation, and ensure sufficient, sustainable energy and a clean environment for all.

As a Central Appalachian state which is strongly tied to the fossil fuel and chemical industries, we know that our work is both a great challenge and greatly needed. We seek to build a coalition of faith-based voices throughout our state that will actively engage in the work of preserving the clean air, water and general environment on which we all depend.
