In 2005 the Edmund Rice Centre began the Eco-Justice unit as a project to examine how we could better integrate ecological concerns in to the practice and work of the Centre.
The philosophy of the Eco-Justice unit comes from the Earth Charter, an international declaration of principles underpinning a sustainable future.

We have developed a number of resources and activities, both regular and ad hoc, on issues of sustainability.
And we have initiated the Pacific Calling Partnership campaign, bringing together individuals and organisations involved with, or with a concern for, our Pacific neighbours, to help address the issues arising from climate change in low-lying Pacific nations.
