Decarbonizing Supply Chains: Collaboration and Renewable Energy Strategies

May 10, 2021

With organizations increasingly focusing on becoming more sustainable, decarbonization of the corporate value chain is rapidly becoming a priority. However, understanding Scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and developing a reduction strategy is not an easy journey. As a result, many companies are uncertain where to begin. This guide seeks to answer questions organizations may have. It focuses on supply chain emissions and discusses.

Sustainability trends to act on in 2023

whitePaper | July 21, 2023

The effects of climate change on our lives and economies have become unavoidably apparent. In 2021, the third assessment report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) observed increased warming of the Earth’s surface caused primarily by human activity, with projected increases to rising sea levels and the frequency of heat waves.

24/7 Clean Power : A Climate Technology White Paper

whitePaper | June 16, 2022

Driving power sector emissions down to zero is essential to achieve a net-zero economy. The electrification of energy demand in all other sectors is only effective under the assumption that power sector emissions fall to zero. A 2017 meta analysis of power sector models found that while creating a net-zero power system based solely on variable renewable power was possible, this would require a significant overbuild of capacity to ensure reliable power supply. Power systems based solely on variable renewables were several times more expensive than systems where 80% of power was supplied by variable renewables.

Reaching Net-Zero Carbon by 2040: Decarbonizing and Neutralizing the Use Phase of Connected Devices

whitePaper | June 15, 2022

As part of our Climate Pledge commitment to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, Amazon is working to measure, reduce, and neutralize the emissions across every part of our business. For Amazon Devices, we are integrating carbon reduction strategies across the life cycle of our devices, including materials and manufacturing, transportation, use, and end-of-life phases. This paper focuses on the use phase, which accounts for 10-15% of the overall carbon footprint of rechargeable battery-operated devices and 60-80% of the footprint of plugged-in devices. We believe this phase is an important area of focus, since consumer electronics will always require some amount of electricity to operate. As the world becomes more connected even beyond consumer electronics, we believe that connectivity in itself allows us to rethink how we approach use phase decarbonization for all connected devices.

Space technology ensuring a sustainable planet for future generation

whitePaper | June 28, 2022

Last year, the world watched as billionaires took to the skies and launched themselves into space. Today, the space race has become a phenomenon, providing the ordinary person with a potential opportunity to take an extraordinary spaceflight. But there is more to space than meets the eye – through research and science, space improves people’s lives around the world by contributing to environmental monitoring, natural resource management, weather forecast and climate modelling, and early warning systems to assist in minimising future disasters.

The Hydrogen Economy

whitePaper | October 10, 2022

Climate change and geopolitical turmoil require a radical transformation of today’s fossil fuelbased economy into a renewable energy system. Electricity generation from wind and solar is subject to strong daily and seasonal fluctuations. The potential to produce green electricity also varies greatly geographically. In this context, hydrogen provides an optimal solution for bridging the gap between the volatile generation and the need to supply green energy on-demand across all sectors.
