After years of pressure by Green Americans, Amazon.com announced it will get to 80% renewables by 2024 and 100% by 2030.
Our demands have always been: Commit to 100% renewable energy by 2020 and end the construction of any new data centers that rely on fossil fuel or nuclear power.
Amazon was using 0% renewable energy back in 2014 when we started our Amazon: Build a Cleaner and Fairer Cloud campaign. Since then, Amazon has contracted for wind and solar farms worldwide providing over 50% of its energy use.
But 50% is not good enough when other tech giants are already at 100% clean energy. That's why we need to keep the pressure on Amazon to reach 100% clean energy by 2020.
Many thanks to all of you who have taken action with us, and keep up the pressure.
