Bezos: Amazon to fulfill Paris climate agreement 10 years early

In a press conference held in Washington on Thursday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos revealed the new Climate Pledge to reach the United Nations Paris climate accord requirements ten years before its goal.

Bezos said his company is the first signatory, adding that "Earth is the best planet in the solar system. We need to take care of it." Signing the pledge underlines Amazon's commitment to control its carbon emissions, with the goal of reducing them to zero by 2030.

Back in February, Amazon announced a plan to make 50% of its deliveries carbon neutral by 2030.
