Amazon Fails at Climate Commitment; Carbon Emissions Grow 18% in FY21

  • Amazon’s greenhouse gas emissions ballooned big time last year despite the company’s efforts to sell itself as a leader in climate action. Its carbon dioxide emissions grew an eye-popping 18 per cent in 2021 compared to 2020.
  • This is the second year in a row that Amazon’s climate pollution has grown by double digits since it made a splashy climate pledge and started reporting its emissions publicly in 2019.
