Macquarie Group data indicates that 34 companies in the S&P/ASX 300 have made a commitment to net zero emissions in the first eight months of 2021, compared to 38 for the whole of 2020. Companies that have made net zero emission pledges so far in 2021 include Boral, Ampol and JB Hi-Fi. Their commitments follow a recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which concluded that temperatures could exceed the 1.5 degree increase above pre-industrialised levels within 10 years.
