Over the last decade alone (2010 to 2020), we’ve committed more than €100 billion to grow Amazon across the EU and the UK. If you take in to account our cumulative investments in Europe plus our overall GDP contribution, the total is estimated to be more than €200 billion on a pan-European basis since 2010*.
Those investments have also established Amazon as a major European employer. We now employ more than 200,000 people in good quality permanent roles across Europe, and in our European headquarters in Luxembourg, this has now increased to over 4,000 employees, placing Amazon among the top five employers in the country. This is an increase of more than 10% from the end of 2021 and includes a wide variety of jobs at all levels.
“I am incredibly proud of how we have been able to make good jobs available to so many people across Europe, including those in our headquarters in Luxembourg, my home since 2011. We have come a long way here and I am excited we are now one of its biggest employers in Luxembourg” said Amazon’s Vice President for EU Retail, Jorrit Van der Meulen.
We also support our local communities where we are most needed. Most recently, Amazon has donated more than $45 million in financial support, products, and cloud computing credits to non-profits working on the ground to help the people and institutions of Ukraine. In addition to providing financial and technology support to Ukraine, Amazon has also provided more than 2 million aid items, such as medical supplies and critical relief products. These products include over a half a million items for 32,000 school backpacks distributed to refugee children in schools across Poland, and over 2,000 of which were packed by our employees in Luxembourg and delivered to our local charity partner Croix-Rouge luxembourgeoise.
