Mercedes-Benz AG joins "The Climate Pledge" – a commitment co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism. Amazon orders more than 1,800 electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz Vans.

In 2019, Amazon and Global Optimism founded "The Climate Pledge". The initiative has set itself the goal of contributing to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement ten years earlier than it is intended there, i.e. already in 2040.

The signing companies agree to:

  • Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
  • Implement decarbonisation strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business change and innovation, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions, and other carbon emission elimination strategies.
  • Take actions to neutralize any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent and socially-beneficial offsets to achieve net zero annual carbon emissions by 2040.

Mercedes-Benz joined the Climate Pledge in October 2020 and additionally supports the initiative with its own Ambition2039 initiative.

On August 24th 2020 Mercedes-Benz Vans and Amazon also announce the largest order for Mercedes-Benz electric vehicles to date: more than 1,800 battery-electric eVito and eSprinter from Mercedes-Benz Vans weredelivered to Amazon startingand are used across Europe. The order includes around 600 medium-sized eVito and more than 1,200 vehicles of the large-size van eSprinter.
