Earth Day - The Path to Net Zero

April 22nd, 2022 - Bank of America

Our challenge

According to scientists, a main driver of climate change...

Our challenge

is the continued rise in global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

As GHG emissions increase, climate change impacts are accelerating

These impacts lead to more heatwaves, droughts, superstorms and natural disasters.

The stakes

The scientific community has issued a warning should these emissions remain unchecked:

The stakes

Climate change could be catastophic for much of the world.

The solution

To stop this from happening, we must rapidly cut GHGs and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

The solution

Net zero emissons means drastically reducing emissions, and then balancing residual emissions with carbon removal.

"At the end of the day, it will take all of us - governments, companies, investors and consumers - working together to help ensure a just, stable transition to the sustainable future we all want." Quote by Brian Moynihan, Chief Executive Officer, Bank of America

Our Commitment

And in 2021, Bank of America announced our own net zero goal -

for our financing activities, operations, and supply chain before 2050.

Our Commitment

For Bank of America, this means cutting emissions across our entire value chain

and working closely with our clients on their own journey to achieve net zero.

Our Future

The whole world must come together to help achieve a net zero future.

Together, we can help prevent the worst impacts of climate change...

and transition to a more sustainable future for all.
