The Climate Pledge Fund is dedicated to invest $2 billion in visionary companies across the world and across multiple industries. Recipients are creating de-carbonizing technologies that will help Amazon and other companies reach net zero carbon by 2040.
As part of the Climate Pledge, we have committed ourselves to delivering all Amazon orders CO2-neutral by 2040. Today in Essen, the largest fleet of e-vans in Germany to date was officially launched - for a sustainable and green last mile.
Following The Climate Pledge commitment, and recognizing the urgency of the climate crisis and its impacts on urban communities, Amazon announced a €3.75 million commitment to The Nature Conservancy in an effort to reduce climate change risks and increase species biodiversity in cities. The project will start in Berlin. Learnings will be applied in two other German locations, and then these models will be shared across other European cities.
Since co-founding The Climate Pledge last year, we’ve made new investments in renewable energy around the world, revealed new electric vehicle designs, and announced our first Right Now Climate Fund project with The Nature Conservancy.
