SAN FRANCISCO, June 23 (Xinhua) -- Amazon on Wednesday announced 14 new renewable energy projects in the United States, Canada, Finland and Spain to advance its goal to power 100 percent of company activities with renewable energy by 2025, five years ahead of the original target of 2030.
The new projects bring Amazon's total renewable energy investments to date to 10 gigawatts of electricity production capacity, enough to power 2.5 million U.S. homes.
Amazon is now the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy in the United States, the company said.

"We're driving hard to fulfill The Climate Pledge - our commitment to reach net-zero carbon by 2040, 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO.
