Amazon says it is adding more than 1,800 electric vehicles (EVs) from Mercedes-Benz Vans to its delivery fleet in Europe this year. Mercedes-Benz also has joined The Climate Pledge, which calls on signatories to be net-zero carbon across their businesses by 2040 – a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement goal of 2050.
“At Mercedes-Benz, we have set ourselves the ambitious target to make the transformation of mobility a success story. By joining The Climate Pledge, we are building on our goal to consistently pursue emission-free mobility and sustainable vehicle production,” says Ola Källenius, chairman of the board of management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG.
“We stand with Amazon, Global Optimism and the other signatories of The Climate Pledge, in a commitment to being net-zero carbon by 2040 – 10 years ahead of The Paris Agreement. I am pleased that we will be able to gain even more momentum on our sustainability offensive with this step,” Källenius adds.
