According to scientists, a main driver of climate change...
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 scientific community has issued a warning should these emissions remain unchecked:
Climate change could be catastophic for much of the world.
To stop this from happening, we must rapidly cut GHGs and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
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
And in 2021, Bank of America announced our own net zero goal -
for our financing activities, operations, and supply chain before 2050.
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.
The whole world must come together to help achieve a net zero future.
Together, we can help prevent the worst impacts of climate change...
