Bill Gates is co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In 1975, he founded Microsoft with Paul Allen. A geek icon, tech visionary and business trailblazer, Gates led the company to become the worldwide leader in business and personal software and services. His new book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, lays out the investments and innovations needed to reduce dangerous carbon emissions and secure an inhabitable future.
In 2008, Gates transitioned from his day-to-day role with Microsoft to focus full-time on his foundation's work to expand opportunity to the world's most disadvantaged people. Holding that all lives have equal value no matter where they're being lived, the foundation has donated staggering sums to HIV/AIDS programs, libraries, agriculture research and disaster relief -- and offered vital guidance and critical funding to programs in global health and education.
Together with Warren Buffett, Bill and Melinda Gates founded the Giving Pledge, an effort to encourage the wealthiest families and individuals to publicly commit more than half their wealth to philanthropic causes and charitable organizations either during their lifetime or in their will. In 2015, Gates created the Breakthrough Energy Coalition, a group of individuals and entities committed to clean energy innovation, followed by Breakthrough Energy Ventures, an investor-led fund that provides patient capital to support cutting-edge clean energy companies.
