Amazon announces 71 renewable projects

Amazon has announced that it is expanding its renewable energy portfolio globally, with an additional 2.7GW of capacity across 71 new renewable energy projects. This includes the company’s first renewable energy project in South America and its first solar farms in India and Poland.

Amazon now has 202 renewable energy projects in North America, 117 in Europe, 57 in Asia and the Pacific, one in the Middle East, one in Africa, and now one in South America, with the total output of the renewable projects reaching 50TWh of clean energy when complete. By the end of 2021, the company had already reached 85 per cent renewable energy use across its business.

Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge in 2019, committing to reach net-zero carbon by 2040—10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. The Pledge now has more than 375 signatories, including Best Buy, IBM, Microsoft, PepsiCo, Siemens, Unilever, Verizon, and Visa.
