Celebrating Over 100 Signatories Committed to Climate Action

100+ Signatories

By The Climate Pledge Team

Together, our community of over 100 Pledge signatories span 25 industries and 16 countries. Learn more and see which companies have committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2040.

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.

“ Less than two years ago, Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge and called on other companies to reach the Paris Agreement 10 years early—today, more than 100 companies with over $1.4 trillion in global annual revenues and more than 5 million employees have signed the Pledge. ”

“We helped to initiate The Climate Pledge to prove a model that accelerates decarbonization with the most ambitious companies,” said Christiana Figueres, the UN’s former climate chief and now founding partner of Global Optimism. “Today over 100 companies, including household brands and companies from all industry sectors, have joined The Climate Pledge with its goal of net-zero by 2040. They are demonstrating that moving faster toward decarbonizing their businesses is a pathway to competitive advantage. There is no doubt we’re at a tipping point to establish the low carbon economy envisioned in the Paris Agreement. I commend the leadership of the companies that have joined The Climate Pledge already and look forward to welcoming the next 100.
