Committed to a sustainable future
Amazon is making big changes to protect the planet.
On 19 September 2019 Amazon and Global Optimism announced The Climate Pledge, a commitment to meet the Paris Agreement 10 years early. Amazon is the first signatory of this pledge. The Climate Pledge calls on signatories to be net zero carbon across their businesses by 2040—a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s goal of 2050.
