World’s largest asset manager brags about its “ability to convene companies, governments and institutional clients.”
- BlackRock, the globalism-promoting money manager with $10 trillion in assets, renewed its pledge to fight so-called “climate change” today by announcing it would “establish a perpetual infrastructure strategy that will seek to partner with leading infrastructure businesses over the long term to help drive the global energy transition.”
- The asset manager will make investments to shift the world “toward a green economy” by implementing changes “across all infrastructure sectors.”
- The strategy will focus on investments in Europe initially, but will become “increasingly global over the decades to come,” according to the press release, an undertaking that will cost an estimated $125 trillion “needed globally by 2050 to reach net zero.”
- BlackRock also emphasized its commitment to pushing leftist (“woke”) environmentalist and ESG ideology onto all of the companies under its influence: “Through its investments in these businesses, BlackRock will take an active approach in helping companies transition to lower-carbon business models over time,” reads the press release.
- The asset manager brags about its ability to control the actions of corporations as well as governments: “BlackRock is a leader in the energy transition, having mobilized over $55 billion of investments across our infrastructure strategies since their inception,” said Global Head of BlackRock Real Assets Anne Valentine Andrews. “Our ability to convene companies, governments and institutional clients means we are uniquely placed to deploy capital from investors globally into real assets that drive the energy transition and have a positive impact on local communities and economies.”
- BlackRock holds shareholding authority over countless international companies across every major industry, including: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, YouTube, Alphabet, AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Apple, Microsoft, IBM, Dell, Intel, Caterpillar, 3M, Volkswagen, Toyota, Ford, Honda, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Amazon, Walmart, Costco, Target, FedEx, Delta, American Airlines, United, Southwest, Ross, Nike, TJX, Pepsi, CocaCola, Nestle, Sysco, Tyson Foods, Del Monte, Seaboard Corp, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Exxon Mobile, Shell, BP, Total Energies, Chevron, General Electric, Tesla, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Berkshire Hathaway, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Citigroup, Capital One, Wells Fargo, Prudential, MetLife, Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, CVS, Anthem, Blue Cross, Zillow, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Disney, Netflix, Time Warner, The New York Times, Yahoo, Discovery, iHeartMedia, Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, News Corp, Viacom, to name only a few companies owned by BlackRock.
- “BlackRock today manages one of the largest climate infrastructure franchises globally, investing in renewables across developed markets,” the release states. “BlackRock recently partnered with the Governments of France, Germany, and Japan, together with a number of institutional investors and leading foundations, to raise the Climate Finance Partnership, a flagship blended finance vehicle focused on investing in climate infrastructure across emerging markets.”
BLACKROCK PUSHING “SUSTAINABILITY”:
“We believe the intersection of infrastructure and sustainability will be one of the biggest opportunities in alternative investments in the coming years. At the same time, recent events have sharpened the focus on energy security and further compounded the need for infrastructure investment,” said Global Head of BlackRock Alternative Investors Edwin Conway. “Private markets will continue to play a pivotal role in the energy transition, and we are pleased to offer our clients another way to go beyond simply navigating the transition to driving it forward.”
- BlackRock is an official partner of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and BlackRock CEO Larry Fink is on the WEF’s Board of Trustees.
- Announcing its “Net Zero Challenge” in 2020, the WEF in a letter sent to company leaders instructed its partners “to set a target to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner.”
- BlackRock now says it “is no longer whether the net zero transition will happen but how” and that this transition “will rewire economies.”
- The WEF predicts that by the year 2030 we will “own nothing. And you’ll be happy,” that the United States “won’t be the world’s leading superpower,” that we will “eat much less meat,” and that, instead of meat, “we’ll soon be voluntarily crunching insects.”
