While a portion of our endeavors may need to slow, and a few strategies may transform, we are more dedicated than any other time in recent memory to changing the economy to assemble a fair and maintainable future. Truth be told, it has never felt more important. The need to quicken the progress to a net-zero emanations economy will become considerably increasingly basic in the coming months and years as contamination, rising temperatures, deforestation, unreasonable force irregular characteristics, and the corruption of our normal assets leave us progressively helpless against future emergencies, if unaddressed. As we remake our economy, we will keep working with financial specialists and organizations to help explore the dangers and openings inserted in our new reality.

We should be conclusive and opportune to meet the squeezing needs of today, while having the vision and the shrewdness to get ready for tomorrow.

To speculators and organizations, our accomplices in this work, we have a comparable message: Take time to address this quick emergency, deal with your laborers, your families, and your partners, and afterward rejoin us in our drawn out endeavors to moderate the effect of mounting and crossing worldwide dangers.

One thing that history has indicated us is that an emergency can create genuine change. The intensity of aggregate activity will get obvious. Genuine pioneers will rise. The unimaginable will get unavoidable. Inventive thoughts and approach arrangements will grab hold, spare lives and in the long run recover the economy on target.

Let us not dismiss the exercises we can learn in the coming many months, the manners in which we can help, and the open doors every one of us has each day to pay special mind to each other and to make a more grounded, stronger, increasingly impartial economy.
