Naspers and Prosus sign The Climate Pledge

Naspers and Prosus sign The Climate Pledge, a commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040 – 10 years ahead of the goal set out in the United Nations’ Paris Climate Agreement.

The Climate Pledge is a community of leading businesses committed to transformational action in addressing critical climate challenges. Founded by Amazon and Global Optimist in 2019, the 375+ signatories to The Climate Pledge play a critical role in stimulating investment in the development of low-carbon products and services.

“As a new signatory of The Climate Pledge, we reaffirm our commitment to lead in the transition towards a greener economy. The Climate Pledge is a unique platform to drive urgent joint action, to address the most critical climate challenges”

said Prajna Khanna, Global Head of Sustainability at Naspers and Prosus.

As a global consumer internet group and a leading long-term technology investor, Naspers and Prosus recognise the power of technology to create solutions for some of the world’s most pressing needs, such as climate action. Our portfolio of asset light, digital platforms, can support the transition to a lower carbon economy by providing alternatives to traditional brick and mortar businesses and support for circular-economy innovations.
