Call on Amazon to build a cleaner cloud

Anything “in the cloud” is stored on servers that require massive amounts of energy to operate—and Amazon.com's servers are some of the largest and dirtiest in the industry. Sign GreenAmerica's petition calling on Amazon to build a cleaner cloud—one that is powered by renewable energy.

Call on Amazon to build a cleaner cloud

Anything “in the cloud” is stored on servers that require massive amounts of energy to operate—and Amazon.com's servers are some of the largest and dirtiest in the industry. Sign GreenAmerica's petition calling on Amazon to build a cleaner cloud - one that is powered by renewable energy.

While other major technology firms have established data centers powered by renewable energy, like wind and solar, Amazon continues to build data centers in areas where coal and natural gas are the dominant power sources. The burning of these fossil fuels increases the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, leading to climate change. 

What’s more, Amazon has refused to disclose any information about its energy use. The company also refuses to produce an annual sustainability report. Amazon is hiding its impacts on the planet from its customers and shareholders.

No one should have to choose between using the Internet or protecting the planet. 

Consumer pressure on Amazon works. In the last year, the company committed to its first clean energy sources, from wind.  But, Amazon is far behind its competitors and has a long way to go.
