All have pledged to eliminate their contribution to carbon emissions by 2050.

Here are six of them:

  1. Vodafone has pledged to reach net zero as early as 2040.
  2. Sainsbury’s. The company is “reducing food waste, plastic packaging and water usage and increasing recycling, biodiversity, and sustainable eating.”
  3. AstraZeneca. The pharmaceutical company is aiming to double its energy productivity, using “100% renewable energy for power and heat.”
  4. Rolls-Royce has established a circular economy approach to its manufacturing process – up to 95% of their jet engines can now be recycled.
  5. Legal and General has committed to becoming net zero across “their entire operational footprint from 2030.”
  6. Aviva is investing £2.5 billion in low carbon and renewable energy infrastructure and powering all its offices with “100% renewable electricity.”

Now all the world needs is for the rest to follow suit.
