The 2015–2016 Paris Climate Agreement was hailed worldwide as amongst the most significant developments in the history of the global response to climate change. Corporations, too, are highly significant actors with respect to climate change. The vast majority of global emissions are traceable in some way to economic activity, much of which, in turn, is linked to corporations. The emissions-producing actions of collective entities like states and corporations are, ultimately, the aggregate product of the actions of individual members of those collectives. Sub-national political communities, corporations, and individuals, then, are all highly significant actors with respect to climate change. Corporations are amongst the most important actors with respect to climate change, worldwide, given both their enormous contributions to climate change, and the vast resources at their disposal. Emissions from aviation are growing quickly and threaten to absorb an ever-increasing percentage of the remaining carbon budget.
