Corporate climate commitments are improving, but the worst offenders are doing the least - CNBC

Quick Summary:

The number of corporations pledging to emit net zero emissions by 2050 will more than double from this year to next year, from 102 to 238.

While net zero targets generally have a year as the finish line, they don't commit to a particular degree reduction of global warming.

Companies with verified targets by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) to meet a 2-degree scenario will double between 2022 and 2023, from 25 to 45.
