Carlyle Group pledged to bring greenhouse gas emissions across its portfolio to net zero by 2050, the first major private equity firm to join its Wall Street peers in making the climate pledge. 

Washington-based Carlyle said in a statement Tuesday it is taking several actions to bring the businesses it owns more in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.
