The American Business Act on Climate Pledge is a new initiative by the White House, and it involves a lot of major U.S. companies.
Thirteen in total. The list includes the holy trinity of tech companies, Apple, Google and Microsoft; both major soda companies, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo; and the world's largest company by revenue, Wal-Mart — just to name a few.
