  • In the past 3 months, Jeff Bezos, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, KKR and Delta have each made sizable commitments in addressing climate change.
  • Estimates for temperature increases are narrowing and converging to an approximate 3°C increase by 2100 – well beyond the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C threshold for avoiding substantial impact.
