More and more companies are trying to tackle climate change, and Amazon is just one of the many other companies that is continuing their investment in the renewable energy sector.
As of right now, Amazon has announced that they're expanding their renewable energy investments with 71 new renewable energy projects around the world.
This includes their first renewable energy project in South America—a solar farm in Brazil—and its first solar farms in India and Poland.
According to Amazon, once it is fully operational, the global renewable energy portfolio will be generating around 50,000-gigawatt hours of clean energy. This is the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power 4.6 million US homes each year.
"We are bringing new wind and solar projects online to power our offices, fulfillment centers, data centers, and stores, which collectively serve millions of customers globally, and we are on a path to reach 100% renewable energy across our entire business by 2025. Around the world, countries are looking to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy, and continued investments like ours can help accelerate their journey as we all work together to mitigate the impacts of climate change," said Adam Selipsky, CEO of Amazon Web Services.
