My article today on Triple Pundit on why Amazon is so hush hush about its carbon footprint

Earlier today, an article I wrote, entitled Why Amazon Needs to Come Clean About its Carbon Footprint was published on Triple Pundit.

Here's a bit more from the article:

A couple of weeks ago, just before Earth Day, Amazon presented some interesting information about the green purchasing habits of its customers, showing how America is going green. One interesting piece that was missing in this report was how Amazon is going green.

Frankly, I really don’t know how green is Amazon because when it comes to its own footprint, Amazon is consistently more secretive than the CIA (which actually doesn’t mind sharing its green initiatives).

Will it change next month Next month, when shareholders will vote in their annual meeting on a resolution calling Amazon to prepare a report that will assess the impact of climate change on Amazon and make it public?
