This initiative is in line with Amazon’s long-term goal to power its global infrastructure using 100 percent renewable energy. It says that with the improvements in electric vehicles, aviation bio fuels, reusable packaging, and renewable energy, it can now see a path to net zero carbon delivery of shipments to customers. It has set a goal of reaching net zero carbon for 50 percent of all Amazon shipments by 2030.

The company says that it will share its progress on this journey by releasing company-wide carbon footprint data in addition to related goals and programs later this year. This is the result of an extensive project over the past two years in which Amazon developed an advanced scientific model to carefully map out its carbon footprint.

Amazon acknowledges that achieving the Shipment Zero target won’t be easy but it feels that “it’s worth being focused and stubborn on this vision” and that it’s committed to seeing it through.
