Introducing our most sustainable devices ever
The health of our planet is something we care deeply about. Last year, Amazon co-founded the Climate Pledge—a commitment to be net zero carbon across our business by 2040. Since then, we've made good progress, but we're not slowing down. We continue to invent more sustainable solutions across all areas of our business, including Devices & Services.
We are building new wind and solar farms to produce clean energy equivalent to the electricity used by every customer's Echo device. We are building our first Devices wind and solar farms in the U.S., and we have a bold goal to continue building new renewable energy projects until we account for the energy consumption of all Amazon devices.
In addition, we are working hard to make our devices energy efficient because it's good for the planet and our customers. That's why we've added a Low Power Mode feature to all new wall-powered Echo and Fire TV devices that reduces their lifetime energy consumption by using less power during periods of inactivity.
Finally, later this year, we're introducing a new energy dashboard that will allow U.S. customers to understand the energy consumption of compatible Echo and Alexa-connected smart home devices in the Alexa app.
