Together, Pledge signatories generate over $1.4 trillion in global annual revenues and have more than 5 million employees across 25 industries in 16 countries.
Amazon and Global Optimism have announced that more than 100 companies are now committed to The Climate Pledge. Fifty-two new signatories signed the Pledge on April 21, including Alaska Airlines, Colgate-Palmolive, HEINEKEN, PepsiCo, Telefónica, Visa, and other well-known brands. Together, Pledge signatories now generate more than $1.4 trillion in global annual sales and have more than 5 million employees across 25 industries in 16 countries—demonstrating the collective impact The Climate Pledge can have in addressing climate change.
Signatories to The Climate Pledge commit to three areas of action:
- Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
- Implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business changes and innovations, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions, and other carbon emission elimination strategies.
- Neutralize any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets to achieve net-zero annual carbon emissions by 2040—a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s goal of 2050.
