Around 155 companies have signed a statement calling on global governments to align their efforts to recover from the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus with the latest climate science.
With a combined market capitalisation of more than $2.4 trillion (£2tn) and representing more than five million employees, the businesses are all part of the Science-Based Targets initiative - among their ranks are Adobe, Carlsberg Group, Coca-Cola European Partners, Colgate Palmolive, EDF Group, Electrolux, H&M Group, Mars, Nestlé, Orange, Salesforce.com, Telefonica, The Co-op and Vodafone Group.
Spanning 34 sectors, they are calling for policies that will build resilience against future economic shocks by supporting efforts to reach net-zero emissions well before 2050 by holding global temperature rises to within 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
