Investing in the EU

See how Amazon's investments have impacted Europe.
  • We’re supporting employees in our corporate offices, tech hubs, fulfillment centers, retail stores, and transportation network, providing access to skills that will help them move into more highly skilled and higher-paying roles.
  • Creating high-quality jobs is fundamental to delighting our customers. Our investments have led to the creation of thousands of jobs—from over direct hires across Europe to thousands of jobs created by our selling partners and companies benefiting from the ripple effect of our investments.
  • Supporting small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) is a fundamental part of our work and an extension of our customer-centric culture. We see value in investing in the success of sellers, artisans, authors, and software developers.
