Responsible Stewardship

As subjects of creation, people are also called to be responsible stewards of natural resources in a socio-economic order (ND. nn, 19-24; WA, n.6). The resources of planet Earth are not limitless. The abuse and waste of finite resources affect the health and wellbeing of present and future generations. Nature should not be treated coldly and calculatingly as a mere storagehouse of commodities (Ps 104). In our times, humanity must learn to organize socioeconomic systems in such a way that nature remains sufficiently balanced and human needs are adequately satisfied (i.e., eco-development). This means finding ways of using capital and technology in partnership and harmony with nature. In this context, consideration needs to be given to sustainable models of development based on renewable as well as nonrenewable resources.
