Amazon Supports Fight against Climate Change Effects on European Cities

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.

Our progress on The Climate Pledge

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.
