The biggest eCommerce company in the world, Amazon, just launched a new initiative aimed at making half of its shipments carbon neutral in the next decade.

The project, called Shipment Zero, will reportedly focus on Amazon’s long-term goal of powering its global infrastructure using 100 percent clean, renewable energy.

“With improvements in electric vehicles, aviation biofuels, reusable packaging, and renewable energy, for the first time we can now see a path to net zero carbon delivery of shipments to customers, and we are setting an ambitious goal for ourselves to reach 50% of all Amazon shipments with net zero carbon by 2030,” Dave Clark, Senior Vice President for Amazon’s worldwide operation, said in a blog post.

“We are calling this project “Shipment Zero” – it won’t be easy to achieve this goal, but it’s worth being focused and stubborn on this vision, and we’re committed to seeing it through.”

Shipment Zero to Make Amazon Deliveries Carbon Neutral

Details about the project are not public yet, but Amazon said that it would share its company-wide carbon footprint reduction plans later this year.

The plan is part of an extensive project launched by Amazon to focus on the development of an advanced scientific model that can map the carbon footprint of the company.

The carbon footprint information provided by this plan will help its business teams identify methods to reduce carbon use.

“We believe that lower costs include lowering the costs to the environment we all live and work in every day,” Clark added.

Other international companies like Apple, Coca-Cola, and McDonalds have also announced a similar initiative. Apparently, these projects were launched to encourage people to switch to sustainable living.
