With the increase in online shopping and work from home since the onset of the epidemic, the group’s emissions fell to 60.64 million in 2020, equivalent to 44.4 million tons of CO2 per year in 2018, an increase of 37% in two years. The 37 new renewable energy projects announced on Wednesday are located in the United States, Spain, France, Australia, Canada, India, Japan and the United Arab Emirates. With these projects, the board will have a total of 134 wind or solar panel sites and 176 photovoltaic roofs. Amazon did not provide details about the financial terms of these plans.
