We’re committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. Learn how AWS can help you meet your company’s sustainability goals.
AWS joins a global mission
Amazon is committed to The Climate Pledge and becoming a net-zero carbon emissions company by 2040. We’re innovating and investing to decarbonize our own business operations—including everything involved in re:Invent 2023. We support carbon-neutral efforts outside of our business too. For more information, visit About Amazon, the AWS Sustainability page, or the re:Invent Sustainability Blog.
Attend sustainability workshops
Learn from AWS Sustainability experts and customers in sustainability breakout sessions and workshops. Discover how AWS is building a more sustainable business for our customers, how organizations are using AWS to accelerate decarbonization, and how builders can optimize their workloads and architect for sustainability.
Visit the sustainability showcase
Come view the tools that all organizations—independent of size or sector—can use to build and implement solutions that will help them meet their sustainability goals. Learn about AWS custom silicon chips and AWS-designed processors, such as Graviton3, and see examples of how customers use AI/ML and IoT to innovate and become more sustainable.

Event sustainability starts with planning
Here are the things we’re doing behind the scenes to make a more sustainable re:Invent:
Reducing onsite waste and waste diversion
Food and material donations
Supporting local communities
Discouraging single-use plastics by implementing programs such as Hydrate and Help
Sustainable menu planning, inclusive of plant-forward menu options and plant-based meal days
Using environmentally preferable construction and signage materials
Food and material donations
Reducing food waste by not over-ordering food
Tracking the direct environmental impacts of re:Invent
Ready to make an impact?
Attend. Attend sustainability breakout sessions and workshops to learn more innovative ways to solve current and real-life business challenges.
Dive deep. Visit the sustainability showcase to dive deep on topics seen in the breakout sessions and workshops.
Reduce and reuse. Pick up your reusable water bottle from SWAG (The Venetian, Hall C), and participate in Hydrate and Help to reduce waste from single-use plastic and to help fund clean-water projects.
Eat sustainably. Menus at re:Invent are designed with sustainability in mind. Choose more plant-based options to reduce your carbon footprint this year. Looking to amplify your efforts? Stop by Mandalay Bay on Tues., Nov. 28 and Caesar’s Forum on Wed., Nov. 29 to participate in our plant-based day—enjoy delectable plant-based culinary creations all day.
Opt in. AWS re:Invent programs are designed to reduce the amount of materials used and divert trash from landfills. Select reusable service ware (vs. disposables) for meals to join the effort.
Waste sorting. Waste sorting can be confusing, so we’ve implemented a secondary waste sorting program to help ensure that the fewest items go to landfill as possible.
Donate. Give away SWAG that won’t fit in your luggage. Look for donation bins near transportation locations and exits across the re:Invent campus. Place your SWAG in these bins, and we’ll donate it to Clark County nonprofit organizations.
Opt out. Opt out of housekeeping when you check in to your hotel. You’ll reduce waste plus the water and energy resources that these services consume.
Use re:Invent transportation. Take the re:Invent shuttles or monorail, or follow the walking paths between re:Invent venues rather than driving, taking a cab, or using a rideshare program to get around.
