The decision comes 20 days after the request by 300 employees of Amazon's greater efforts on the climate of the part of the company, criticizing its environmental policy. Employees participating in the Amazon Employees for Climate Justice (Aecj), are pushing the giant e-commerce to revise its environmental policies. The criticisms relate to the environmental plan submitted on 19 September last year by Bezos, who announced the achievement of zero emissions Amazon in 2040. According to the Aecj, the company should aim at carbon neutrality in 2030.
Amazon, which has built its success on a massive logistics network of road transport to ensure deliveries are always faster, is a major producer of greenhouse gas emissions, the main responsible for the emission into the atmosphere of carbon dioxide. According to the online platform 'Climate Watch', the 44.4 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent is produced every year from Amazon are little more than 10% of the total annual emissions of France.
"We can save the Earth," he wrote on Instagram Bezos posting a picture of the planet. "It requires a collective action of large and small companies, Governments, global organisations and individuals". And he concludes: "The Earth is the thing that all of us have in common. Protect it together."
