Our sustainability approach
At Amazon, we are committed to and invested in sustainability because it’s a win all around – it’s good for business, the planet, our customers, and our communities.
We put our scale and inventive culture to work on sustainability and protecting the environment.
As part of the Climate Pledge, we have committed ourselves to delivering all Amazon orders CO2-neutral by 2040. Today in Essen, the largest fleet of e-vans in Germany to date was officially launched - for a sustainable and green last mile.
Following The Climate Pledge commitment, and recognizing the urgency of the climate crisis and its impacts on urban communities, Amazon announced a €3.75 million commitment to The Nature Conservancy in an effort to reduce climate change risks and increase species biodiversity in cities. The project will start in Berlin. Learnings will be applied in two other German locations, and then these models will be shared across other European cities.

Climate change is accelerating, and so are we—in our mission to help slow the crisis.
The Climate Pledge, co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism, is a commitment to reach net zero carbon by 2040.
Major investments in renewable energy are a critical step to address Amazon’s carbon footprint globally.
