Amazon quietly commits to 100% clean energy for AWS, but gives no details

Gigaom

While some of the biggest internet companies in the world — like Google, Apple and Facebook — have been investing in clean energy to run their data centers, Amazon has mostly shied away from publicly committing to using energy like solar and wind for Amazon Web Services. But perhaps that is starting to change.

Amazon recently updated a statement on its website, which Greenpeace has been touting, and which says:

[blockquote person=”” attribution=””]AWS has a long-term commitment to achieve 100% renewable energy usage for our global infrastructure footprint.[/blockquote]

It might not seem like a big deal, but that [company]Amazon[/company] is even talking about clean energy at all is worth noting. AWS has been one of the least transparent internet infrastructure companies around when it comes to sustainability and clean energy, and [company]Greenpeace[/company] gave Amazon a scathing review in a report in April earlier this year.
