Corporations Pledge to Buy ‘Green’ at Davos Gathering

WASHINGTON — More than 50 corporations have joined a global “buyers’ club” that pledges to purchase aluminum, steel and other commodities made from processes that emit little to no carbon, a move that will be announced on Wednesday by leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

John Kerry, President Biden’s special climate envoy, and a group of billionaire corporate titans — including Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, and Marc Benioff, the chief executive officer of Salesforce — are gathering at a Swiss Alps resort for the forum.
