$100M committed to the Breakthrough Energy Catalyst Program

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.

Larry Fink: I really believe the transformation of leadership, the transformation of businesses is about more and more leaders in their focusing on things about their stakeholders. They're connecting with their employees deeper and broader, they’re connecting with the client broader and they're certainly trying to be more connected to their society. So much of that is in this letter it is about moving forward on better disclosure, more complete disclosure, especially in that zero climate change. And investing is something that is a powerful economic result. As we move towards a more sustainable world it's going to create great jobs, is going to create a you know a great environment, and so we should not be afraid of it we should all be embracing it and finding ways that we could you know be a part of that and I think this is one of the big messages in the 2021 letter.
