Today, The Climate Pledge is delighted to officially welcome 54 new signatories including plant-based meat purveyor, Impossible Foods, four-time WNBA champions, Seattle Storm, and B-Corp adventure gear brand, Cotopaxi.
In total, more than 375 companies across 53 industries and 34 countries, have now signed The Climate Pledge – a new milestone signaling the growing importance of more sustainable operations to organizations worldwide.
In 2019, Amazon and Global Optimism co-founded The Climate Pledge. Each company that signs the Pledge commits to taking responsibility for decarbonizing their businesses and reaching net-zero by 2040. As the number of Pledge signatories increases, we expand our potential to collaborate cross-sector and multiply our efforts in response to the current climate threat.
Signatories of The Climate Pledge agree to:
- 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.
