Sustainability in Germany

Amazon is the first signatory of The Climate Pledge, which calls on signatories to be net zero carbon across their businesses by 2040—meeting the Paris Agreement 10 years early. In Germany and around the world, we are committed to sustainability because it’s a win all around—it’s good for the planet, our customers, our communities, and business.

In 2020, Amazon committed €3.75 million to The Nature Conservancy’s Urban Greening program to help cities promote biodiversity, reduce urban heat islands, and improve stormwater management in the face of climate change. With Amazon’s support program, the program launched in Berlin’s Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district in 2020 and will expand to two additional German cities over five years. The goal is to share a guide to urban greening with municipalities across Europe by the end of the five-year project.
