The website contains information about Amazon`s carbon footprint and other sustainability metrics that share the company`s progress in achieving The Climate Pledge.

The new goals, commitments, investments and programs announced today build on Amazon`s long-term commitment to sustainable development through existing innovative programs, including Shipment Zero, Amazon`s vision to make all emissions by 2030 with a net net carbon ratio of 50%.
