Amazon India’s role in commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040
In 2020, Amazon India had announced that its fleet of delivery vehicles will include 10,000 electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025. This is part of the company’s global commitment of adding 1,00,000 electric vehicles to the delivery fleet by 2030 in the Climate Pledge signed by Amazon.
In September 2019, Amazon became the first signatory of the Climate Pledge, which states that the company will be net zero carbon by 2040 across its businesses – a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s goal of 2050. By joining ‘The Climate Pledge’ and agreeing to decarbonise on a faster time frame, signatories will play a critical role in stimulating investment in the development of low-carbon products and services that will be required to help companies meet the pledge. In support of The Climate Pledge commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040, 10,000 Amazon custom electric delivery vehicles will be on the road delivering to customers worldwide as early as 2022, with 1,00,000 units expected by 2030.
