The retail giant has plans to go green! Amazon recently announced it would like half of its shipments to become carbon neutral by 2030. How do they plan to do this? The retailer, which has nicknamed the project “Shipment Zero,” plans to use renewable energy and the use of electric vans. Currently, Amazon’s commitment to sustainability is evident with its use of Frustration Free Packaging, solar panels on the rooftops of its fulfillment centers and its network of solar and wind farms.

According to Amazon’s website, they have over 200 scientists, engineers and product designers dedicated exclusively to inventing new ways to leverage their scale for the good of customers and the planet. Ultimately, the company has plans to be powered entirely by renewable energy.
