Amazon Produced More Carbon Emissions Last Year Than Switzerland

Posted on the 25 June 2020 by Ecoexperts @TheEcoExperts

Amazon Employees for Climate Justice (AECJ) tweeted in response to the news, calling the company's CO2e increase "a big step in the wrong direction."

The group continued: "Amazon greenwashes its emissions growth by saying the year-over-year increase is less than its sales growth.

"But dollars are irrelevant to the health and sustainability of the planet."

AECJ said "the data is clear: Amazon is polluting the planet more than ever before while sales & the stock price skyrocket."

The group then added, ominously: "We know 2020 will be even worse."

AECJ was established last year, after Amazon threatened to fire staff for speaking out against climate change.

Amazon has not yet responded to a request for comment.
