$100M committed to the Breakthrough Energy Catalyst Program

BlackRock

The impact of climate change poses not only environmental risk but investment risk.

This year, we’ve taken steps globally to mitigate those risks and help the world transition to net zero including:

The BlackRock Foundation is giving $100 million to the Breakthrough Energy Catalyst program to fund innovation in clean energy and combat climate change.

We’re building partnerships with companies that can accelerate the transition.

We’re helping developing countries build green energy infrastructure, and putting our clients’ money to work in renewable power sources.

The transition to a net zero world is the shared responsibility of every citizen, corporation and government. We all have a role to play.

Creating a sustainable future is our shared responsibility – every citizen, company and government working together. That's why BlackRock is helping to fund clean energy technology through our Foundation and partnering with companies that can accelerate the transition to net zero.

SUSTAINABILITY AT BLACKROCK

Innovation on the road to net zero

Federico Moncaleano
Head of Offshore Wealth

Hello and welcome from BlackRock’s US Offshore Business, headquartered in Miami. Our team has a presence in Miami, New York and Texas, and we focus on serving the offshore investor community across the United States.

In January 2020, we published a letter setting out our ambitions for BlackRock to play a leadership role as a sustainable investor for our clients, on whose behalf we invest. I am delighted to say that, since then, we have delivered some good progress. 

Just a few of the highlights include that, today, all of our active and advisory strategies are ESG integrated – covering US$2.7 trillion in assets.

We introduced 93 new sustainable solutions in 2020, helping clients allocate billions of dollars to sustainable investment strategies over the year,

and we have added 1,200 sustainability metrics to our technology platform to help clients better understand ESG and physical climate risks.

Now, in 2021, we are pushing ahead once again. We have announced a set of actions that we are taking to help move our clients’ portfolios – and the global economy – towards the crucial target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The net zero transition is an imperative for society and for the planet, and it will reshape the global economy, offering a number of exciting investment opportunities. This is an exciting moment for all of us.

Whether you are an existing or prospective client, a possible or future colleague, a business partner, or just an interested member of society, welcome to BlackRock.
