Our Impact

Economic Growth

Amazon is a powerful engine of growth for the national economy – revitalising communities across Europe through job creation, economic investment, and innovative services.

Investing in Europe

See how Amazon's investments have impacted Europe.
  • We’re a global business – with an important local role. New third-party research demonstrates that Amazon’s investments in Europe have a positive economic effect to communities around Amazon’s fulfilment centres (FCs).
  • 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.

Creating opportunity for Europeans across EU Member States – and employing 150,000 people

In addition to jobs, Amazon provided more than 3.5 million hours of training to employees in our Operations functions in 2022 and has invested over €540 billion since 2010 in the EU business.
