Amazon’s new custom electric delivery vehicles from Rivian have stad hitting the road across the United States, a step forward in Amazon’s efforts to achieve The Climate Pledge - to be net-zero carbon by 2040. To mark the milestone, Udit Madan, vice president of Amazon Transportation, asked Amazon CEO Andy Jassy and Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe about their thoughts on innovation, sustainability, and the role of companies in helping protect the planet. Electrifying transportation is key to dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Pledge Fund and its investment in Rivian, as well as our partnership with Amazon to electrify last mile delivery, is a meaningful step forward, says the CEO of Amazon.
