Jeff Bezos promised $2 billion in fighting climate change through his Bezos Earth Fund in last week’s COP26 conference held in Glasgow.
Bezos, the founder of Amazon, promised to invest $2 billion in restoring nature and transforming the food system.
The money will come from the Bezos Earth Fund, and it’s part of his promise to spend $10 billion fighting climate change by the end of the decade.
According to CNBC, Bezos made the promise at COP26 in Glasgow and said that 2021 is a critical year.
Bezos also talked about how much CO2 forests and landscapes absorb and how people reverse this process when they destroy nature.
Earlier this year, the Bezos Earth Fund also pledged $1 billion in grants that focus on conservation efforts.
That amounts to $3 billion in pledges, which Bezos hopes will be a threefold nature agenda that will focus on conservation, food transformation, and restoration.
