The Climate Pledge

Sony and Mastercard are among the latest companies pledging to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.

As of June, The Climate Pledge is more than 500 companies strong. Now among them: Sony, the Japanese multinational electronics and entertainment corporation, and Mastercard, the U.S.-based global technology company dedicated to making transactions safe, smart, and accessible. 

By signing The Climate Pledge, these companies—across 58 industries and 45 countries with 15.33 million employees—commit to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. They also join a growing community devoted to advancing climate action in every sector and industry so our planet can thrive. 

Amazon and Global Optimism co-founded The Climate Pledge in 2019 and signatories take responsibility for decarbonizing their businesses. Each new company that joins the Pledge helps us multiply our efforts to respond to the threat of climate change. 

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 a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s goal of 2050. 

Companies that have signed the Pledge also gain access to Passport, a private online community that provides practical tools and expert industry connections to help companies achieve their net-zero carbon emissions goals.  

Amazon and Global Optimism welcome the new Pledge signatories, including:
