We invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy to minimize our impact on the planet’s natural resources.

Powering a clean future

Amazon's largest wind farm to date is adding more than 1 million megawatt hours of clean energy to the grid each year.

Solar power delivers a win-win-win

The Amazon smile box now comes with even more sunshine. Today we announced that we’ve begun hosting solar installations on the rooftops of our fulfillment and sortation centers with a goal of installing at least 50 solar systems by 2020.

Energy and environment

At Amazon, we are putting our scale and inventive culture to work on sustainability not only because it is good for the environment, but also for the customer. By diversifying our energy portfolio, we can keep business costs low and pass along further savings to customers. It's a win-win-win.

AWS and sustainability

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is committed to running our business in the most environmentally friendly way possible. In addition to the environmental benefits inherently associated with running applications in the cloud, AWS has a long-term commitment to achieve 100% renewable energy usage for our global infrastructure footprint. To achieve this goal, we focus on four complementary areas: energy efficiency, continuous innovation, advocacy, and renewable energy.

Amazon wind and solar farms

In September 2016, we announced the plan to build our largest wind project to-date, Amazon Wind Farm Texas. A 253-megawatt (MW) wind farm in Scurry County, with more than 100 turbines, the project will generate 1,000,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of wind energy annually – enough to power almost 90,000 U.S. homes.
