Climate: Securing a cleaner future
When it comes to climate change, it's a race against time. The world must cut emissions -- now.
It's an enormous challenge, but we have many reasons for hope.
To help the world turn the corner, we've zeroed in on solutions with the biggest impact.
Why: Outdated policies governing electric utilities don't fairly value clean energy, and polluters have had free license to pollute.
How: We'll help overhaul obsolete rules that restrict the new energy market, while supporting and defending EPA's Clean Power Plan.
Why: China is now the world’s top emitter of climate pollution.
How: We're working directly with China's government to help the nation launch market-based solutions to trim emissions, while leveraging our business networks to lower pollution in China's vast manufacturing sector.
Why: We'll slow the pace of climate change if we cut carbon dioxide and potent short-acting gases like methane.
How: We're targeting key states to pass methane standards, and making the case for fixing methane leaks across the natural gas supply chain.
Why: Deforestation and unsustainable land use, like fertilizer pollution, are major contributors to climate change.
How: We’re advancing market approaches that increase the value of rainforests and sustainable agriculture.
