Climate change impacts are intensifying

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from human activities are at the highest levels ever, spurring extreme weather events, reducing crop yields and causing sea levels to rise. The negative impacts on societies and our natural resources are intensifying.

Why Climate Change Matters

The effects of climate change call for urgent action.

We must combat climate change to help protect health, economic growth and energy supplies. BNY Mellon supports low-carbon development investments that mitigate climate change. In our operations, we are increasing renewable energy use and reducing consumption of energy, paper and water.
