The White House is enlisting corporate America to try to bolster its push for an international climate change agreement.

White House officials say 81 companies have signed on to the American Business Act on Climate pledge. That’s an additional 68 companies since the White House first unveiled the pledge in June.

By signing on, the companies promise to advocate for a strong climate deal ahead of final negotiations in Paris next month. They also agree to take steps to reduce their own carbon emissions.

The White House says companies that signed the deal include Intel, Coca-Cola, Monsanto, Google and Walmart.

President Obama is slated to meet with executives at a roundtable at the White House on Monday.
