Through this program, more than 40,000 products are for sale, in an easy and accessible way, in Spain, Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom with one or more than 19 sustainability certifications.

What is Climate Pledge Friendly?

The Climate Pledge Fund is a corporate venture capital fund for companies capable of accelerating Amazon’s journey towards The Climate Pledge.

Objectives

This investment program (with a seed capital of USD 2 billion) will target visionary companies whose products and solutions facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Sectors

The Climate Pledge Fund will invest in companies from various industry sectors but will pay particular attention to the following:

  • Transport and logistics
  • Production, storage and use of energy
  • Buildings
  • Production and materials
  • Circular economy
  • Food and agriculture

The Climate Pledge Fund is available globally and will consider companies that develop products or services that reduce carbon emissions and contribute to the conservation of the natural world.

What does zero net emissions mean?

The level of net zero carbon emissions is achieved when a balance is reached between the emissions produced and those removed from the atmosphere. First, companies must reduce the emissions from their activities as much as possible and then invest in credible offsets to eliminate remaining carbon emissions.

Why 2040?

Scientists warn that we have little room for maneuver to make progress towards the measure with the greatest environmental and social impact ever seen: not to exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) increase in global temperature. To achieve this goal, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that the world should cut carbon emissions by at least half by 2030 and reach emissions neutrality by 2050. Through In The Climate Pledge, the signatories are of the opinion that what we should do is reach net emissions equal to zero before 2040 —10 years before that indicated in the Paris Agreement . For our companies, for our planet.

The Climate Pledge Friendly y Amazon

In 2020 Amazon announced the launch of the Climate Pledge Friendly initiative in Spain, Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom. The program will help Spanish customers discover and buy sustainable products more easily. In their searches, customers will now see the “Climate Pledge Friendly” badge on more than 40,000 articles in Europe to indicate that these products have one or more of the 19 different sustainability certifications included in the program and that they help protect the environment. environment, for example, reducing the carbon footprint of shipments to our customers.

The Climate Pledge Friendly selection includes food, home, office, fashion, beauty, electronic devices and other categories for consumers and businesses, from brands such as Cif Ecorefill and Unilever’s Seventh Generation, Faith in Nature, HP, Haglöfs, Calida, Esprit and Kite Clothing. Climate Pledge Friendly products are clearly identified in the results of purchase searches and on product pages, where additional information on sustainability is included, and are presented in a specific section in our store in  Spain . Climate Pledge Friendly includes products from hundreds of small and medium-sized Spanish and European companies.

As part of the Climate Pledge Friendly initiative, Amazon has also launched Compact by Design, a new externally validated certification created by Amazon to identify products that, while they may not always appear different, are more efficiently designed. By removing excess air and water, products require less packaging, making shipping more efficient. At scale, these small differences in the size and weight of a product result in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

One example is Faith in Nature’s plastic-free shampoo bars that are   certified Compact by Design and provide a residue-free alternative to bottled shampoo. Its solid shampoo weighs only a quarter of the weight of a liquid shampoo, significantly reducing weight and packaging.

“Climate Pledge Friendly is an easy way for customers to discover more products with sustainable certifications that help preserve the environment,” said Mariangela Marseglia, VP and Managing Director of amazon.es. “With 18 external certification programs and our own Compact by Design certification, we will help incentivize our business partners to create sustainable products that help protect the planet for generations to come.”

The “Climate Pledge Friendly” initiative supports Amazon’s commitment to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement ten years earlier by achieving CO2 neutrality by 2040. The company has already committed to using 100% renewable energy by 2025 and has ordered more than 1,800 custom electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz to deliver to customers in Europe. Amazon has launched the Climate Pledge Fund, a $ 2 billion fund to support visionary companies whose products and services facilitate the transition to a low-CO2 economy.

Amazon is also working to minimize waste, increase recycling, and provide options for customers to reuse, repair, and recycle. As part of this effort, a wide range of single-use and oxo-biodegradable plastic products are being removed from European stores to help prevent plastic waste. Building on these actions, Amazon will now provide customers with access to product options that align with its commitment to a more sustainable future.
