Our Impact

We are creating thousands of high-quality jobs and investing billions of euros in local economies across Europe. In 2021, we had 200,000 employees across Europe.
  • Our hiring and investments brought much-needed jobs and added billions of euros in economic activity to many communities across Europe.
  • Small and medium businesses now make up more than half of everything we sell in our online stores and have created over 550,000 jobs.
  • We are a part of the communities around the world where our employees live and work. We bring the same innovation and energy to our neighborhoods and cities as we do to our work every day.

We value the opportunity to be a force for good in the lives of our customers and in communities around the world.

Our investments go far beyond creating jobs in communities and empowering small and medium businesses as they grow through selling in Amazon’s Store. We expand access to skill building for in-demand fields and work on urgent needs—from the nonprofits we support that help families in their journeys out of homelessness to the way we provide disaster relief to those in need.
