Tell Amazon to shine with rooftop solar

Action: Climate Change

March 4, 2016   Action Alert ID# 345

 

Amazon.com is named after a unique and threatened ecosystem that's charmed and inspired us all, yet the land and climate footprint of the company's operations pose a serious threat to biodiversity worldwide. That's why the Center for Biological Diversity has launched its new Amazon Shine campaign, urging the company to install solar panels on its huge warehouses.

Amazon's fulfillment centers are some of the largest in the world, taking up more than 70 million square feet of space in the United States alone -- and that's not counting the land and climate impacts of powering these buildings. The entire process requires the mass extraction and transport of fossil fuels, as well as the generation and transmission of electricity over long distances.

By putting solar panels on top of its warehouses, Amazon can help lead the way toward an energy future that's better for wildlife, people and the planet. It'll also make it easier for others to follow suit.

Amazon has responded to similar petitions before -- for instance, by committing to power its web services with 100 percent renewable energy. So join us now in asking Amazon to shine by installing solar panels on its U.S. warehouses.
