Operating sustainably is no longer a choice – it’s an imperative. Making meaningful progress to address climate change takes unprecedented action across all industries and societies. Amazon recognises this and acknowledges that the ways we do business have impacts far beyond our own company. There’s no time to waste, and that’s why we are investing in efforts to protect the environments of the people and communities we serve – both now and in the future.

As part of Amazon’s mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, we are committed to building a sustainable business for our employees, customers and communities. We are driving towards a net-zero carbon future where the people that support our entire value chain are treated with dignity and respect.

We have ordered over 100,000 fully-electric delivery vehicles, and plan to invest $100 million in reforestation projects around the world.

The Climate Pledge

We believe we have an obligation to stop climate change, and reducing carbon emission to zero will have a big impact.

We want to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, a decade ahead of the Paris Climate Agreement, and we are on a path to powering our operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 as part of our goal to reach net-zero carbon.



Our customers want right-sized, recyclable packaging that minimises waste and ensures damage-free delivery. We work to reinvent and simplify our sustainable packaging options using a science-based approach that combines lab testing, machine learning, materials science, and manufacturing partnerships to scale sustainable change across the packaging supply chain.

We are collaborating with others to reduce packaging waste for our customers and the planet. Since 2015, we have reduced the weight of outbound packaging by more than 33% and eliminated over 1 million tons of packaging material—that is the equivalent of 2 billion shipping boxes.


Sustainable Operations

Fromm our latest Scottish wind farm to our new fleet of electric vehicles, we are reducing Amazon’s carbon footprint across all of our business operations and leading the way for other companies to decarbonise worldwide.

By setting ambitious goals and making strategic partnerships and investments, we can reduce our impact for the benefit of our customers, our communities, and our planet.
