To fulfill its long-term goal to power its global infrastructure using 100 percent renewable energy, Amazon has made improvements in electric vehicles, aviation bio fuels, reusable packaging and renewable energy, allowing the company to see a path to net zero carbon delivery of shipments to customers.
The e-commerce giant is now setting an ambitious goal for itself and is aiming to reach 50 percent of all Amazon shipments with net zero carbon by 2030. The project will be known as Shipment Zero.
Amazon will continue to use scale and the feedback customers share with it to enable and encourage suppliers up and down the supply chain to reduce its own environmental impact.
To track its progress, the company will share its carbon footprint, along with related goals and programs later this year. This follows an extensive project over the past two years to develop an advanced scientific model to carefully map our carbon footprint to provide our business teams with detailed information helping them identify ways to reduce carbon use in their businesses.
