All In: Staying the Course on Our Commitment to Sustainability

The climate pledge
Amazon has been committed to sustainability for many years. In 2019, Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge – a commitment to be net zero carbon across our business by 2040, 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. As part of this pledge, Amazon has made ambitious commitments toward reaching this goal.
  • Net Zero Carbon
    Deploying our technology and people to reach net zero carbon across Amazon by 2040, one decade ahead of the Paris Agreement.
  • Renewable Energy
    On a path to powering our operations with 100 % renewable energy by 2025.
  • Shipment Zero
    Making all Amazon shipments net zero carbon through Shipment Zero, with 50% of all shipments net zero carbon by 2030.
  • Electric Delivery Vehicles
    Purchasing 100,000 electric delivery vehicles, the largest order ever of electric delivery vehicles.
  • Climate Pledge Fund
    Investing $2 billion to support the development of technologies and services that reduce carbon emissions and help preserve the natural world.
  • Right Now Climate Fund
    Investing $100 million in reforestation projects and climate mitigation solutions.

While our website reflects our work throughout 2019, the world has clearly undergone a massive shift in 2020 with the emergence of COVID-19. We know there is a lot of uncertainty in the world, and we also know that during these critical times, it is more important than ever to double down on our commitments relating to the climate crisis.
Shipment Zero
Shipment Zero is Amazon’s vision to make all Amazon shipments net zero carbon, with 50 % of all shipments net zero by 2030.
Our focus is achieving net zero carbon shipments via sustainable process improvements, recycled materials, investments in electrification and renewable energy initiatives.
