We are taking a broad, science-based approach to measuring and reducing carbon emissions in our operations.
The Climate Pledge was founded in 2019 by Amazon and Global Optimism. The Pledge calls on signatories to be net zero carbon across their businesses by 2040, a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement goal of 2050. As part of this pledge, Amazon has made ambitious commitments toward reaching this goal.
Amazon is investing in a range of large-scale solutions to decarbonize our business, some with immediate carbon savings and others with longer-term payoffs. Learn how we are eliminating carbon across our supply chain to reach net zero carbon by 2040.
Amazon is on a path to powering our operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 as part of our goal to reach net zero carbon by 2040. In 2019, we reached 42% renewable energy across our business.
Shipment Zero is Amazon’s vision to make all Amazon shipments net zero carbon, with 50% of all shipments net zero by 2030.

Transportation is a major component of Amazon’s business operations and a key part of our plan to meet net zero carbon by 2040. We are committed to optimizing and transforming our transportation network through innovations in electrification, efficiency enhancements, and alternative delivery methods.
Amazon is working to reduce the carbon emissions associated with our buildings and facilities across the globe. We are transitioning our buildings to be net zero carbon, powered by renewable energy, and highly energy efficient, with demonstrated reductions in embodied carbon—the emissions associated with a building’s construction materials. We are also working to improve the resource efficiency of our buildings beyond energy, with a focus on water and waste reduction strategies across our facilities.
See how we put our scale and inventive culture to work on building a sustainable future.
