Amazon to Add 100,000 Electric Vehicles as Part of Climate Pledge
Amazon.com Inc. plans to buy 100,000 electric delivery vehicles as it seeks to reduce its carbon emissions in the face of criticism of its environmental impact.
The order was part of a broader company pledge made by Chief Executive Jeff Bezos while speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. He said the company plans to be carbon-neutral by 2040 and plans to meet the goals of the Paris climate agreement 10 years earlier than the 2050 target.
