"Towards a Global Ethic" was drafted by Professor Hans Küng in consultation with several hundred leaders and scholars, became an official declaration of the Parliament of the World's Religions in 1993. 

The Fifth Directive of the Global Ethic calls for a "commitment to a culture of sustainability and care for the environment".

At the 2018 Parliament of the World's Religions in Toronto, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of this signature document with a reaffirming commitment to its four directives and an expansion of the document to include a fifth directive.
