BlackRock’s goal is to achieve a Net-Zero economy by 2050, with temperature increases limited to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. To get a 50% chance of matching that goal, the globe should reach Net-Zero co2 emissions by 2050 and Net-Zero emissions of other greenhouse gas emissions by around 2070.
Net Zero, according to the firm, is essential for investors. Climate risk is a type of financial risk. The two most significant threats to businesses are physical risk and transition risk.
Companies that rely on generating or consuming fossil fuels for an extended period risk being left behind by their customers and shareholders as policymakers, regulatory bodies, and customers lead the transition to a Net-Zero economy.
