Why I Try Not To Buy from Amazon: Amazon’s Bezos creates $10 billion fund to fight climate change

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos announced Monday that he was forming the Bezos Earth Fund and providing $10 billion to fight climate change. The money will go toward grants to scientists and activists.

“Climate change is the biggest threat to our planet,” Bezos said on Instagram. “I want to work alongside others both to amplify known ways and to explore new ways of fighting the devastating impact of climate change on this planet we all share.”

The establishment of the fund was the latest in a series of environmental commitments by Bezos.

Amazon last year made a “climate pledge” committing the company to shifting 100 percent to renewable electricity by 2030.
