Major online retailer Amazon is making a push to halve the carbon footprint of its shipments by 2030.
The company, which relies largely on shipping packages across the globe, said Monday it ultimately aims to make all its shipments carbon neutral.
“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,” Amazon said in a statement.
The company plans to start with transparency by publishing its overall carbon footprint later in the year. The data release will follow a two-year project by the company to better understand its own source of carbon use.
“We believe that lower costs include lowering the costs to the environment we all live and work in every day. We’ll keep you posted as we work towards achieving Shipment Zero,” Amazon said.
Amazon is joining a number of national retailers like McDonalds, Coca-Cola and Starbucks that are aiming to cut down on their impact to the globe through recycling, ditching plastics, using renewable energy and cutting back on emissions.
