Climate change continues to be a modern world problem. As a result, hundreds of companies have been working to reduce their impact on climate change.

The average global temperature since 1880 has increased by 1.9°F. Though this may not seem a significant number, a small decline of 1.1°F between 1300 and 1850 caused the Little Ice Age.

In 2015, 195 of the world governments signed the Paris agreement to reduce the global temperature increase below 3.6°F, with efforts to limit global warming to 2.7°F.

Since then multiple companies such as Amazon, Walmart and AT&T have been committing to make their operations more sustainable.
