The global pandemic put a spotlight on the value of environmental, social and corporate governance considerations across all sectors. We saw an absolute explosion of net-zero commitments from companies and countries surrounding the 5th anniversary of the Paris Agreement. With these new pledges, the United Nations estimated that by early 2021 countries representing around 65% of global CO2 emissions and around 70% of the world's economy will have committed to reaching net-zero emissions or carbon neutrality.

The new administration in the U.S. brings a significant change in tone on addressing climate risk. On Day 1 in office, President Joe Biden took steps to rejoin the Paris agreement on climate change and pledged to set the U.S. on the path to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 with an interim target of decarbonizing the U.S.

Join S&P Global Market Intelligence for this webinar discussion, bringing together diverse perspectives from three of the world’s largest corporation within retail, energy and technology: Walmart, Duke Energy and AT&T on the challenges of meeting net-zero targets.
