The COVID-19 crisis highlights Amazon’s failure to protect people and the planet.
While other major technology firms have established data centers powered by 100% renewable energy, Amazon is still four years away from using 100% renewable energy and is encouraging fossil fuel companies to use Amazon’s servers to increase their drilling. The production and burning of these fossil fuels increases the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, leading to climate change. Fossil fuels also create pollutants in the air that can exacerbate coronavirus symptoms, and cause heart and lung disease.
Workers in Amazon warehouses report grueling and dangerous working conditions. Workers are not being adequately protected with over 20,000 of them falling ill to Covid-19. Workers at Amazon, throughout the supply chain and in the office, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Join us in calling on Amazon to build a cleaner and fairer cloud and company!
