Caritas Sri Lanka conscious of its responsibility of protecting the environment and taking its cue from the exhortations of Pope Francis as reiterated in the “Laudato si” to act more responsibly to safeguard the resources of mother earth and manage its resources in a sustainable manner, has over the years embarked on installing solar panels on roof tops to generate the required energy to run the day to day operations of the National Secretariat. The use of renewable energy instead of fossil fuel-based energy has enabled us to save about 50 percent of total energy costs. A zero carbon energy foot print is our aim.
