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.
In 2019, Amazon and Global Optimism co-founded The Climate Pledge, a commitment to net-zero carbon by 2040. Since then, a growing list of majour companies have joined The Climate Pledge. These signatories will play a critical role in stimulating investment in the development of low-carbon products and services.
The Climate Pledge Fund, started with US$2 billion from Amazon, will invest in companies creating products, services and technologies to protect the planet. Amazon's Climate Pledge Fund will accelerate investment in innovations for the net-zero carbon economy of the future.
Together, Pledge signatories generate over $1.4 trillion in global annual revenues and have more than 5 million employees across 25 industries in 16 countries.
