AWS Data Exchange Sustainability

At Amazon, we are committed to and invested in sustainability because it’s a win all around – it’s good for business, the planet, our customers, and our communities. AWS Data Exchange aims to support this commitment by making it easy to find, subscribe to, and use third-party sustainability-related data in the cloud.

We're working with organizations to make Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG), public, weather, air quality, satellite imagery data, and much more available to customers to help them accelerate sustainability research, innovation and solution development by removing the friction of finding, licensing, and using sustainability-related data.

Whether you're trying to enhance crop yield while lowering water usage, reduce your company's carbon footprint, or research changing climate patterns, AWS Data Exchange is here to help.

    • What is the difference between AWS Data Exchange and the Registry of Open Data on AWS:
      • There are five key differences between AWS Data Exchange and the Registry of Open Data on AWS. First, AWS Data Exchange supports both free and commercial data products, with any applicable commercial fees applied to a customer’s AWS invoice, whereas the Registry of Open Data on AWS gives customers access to a curated list of free and open data sets. Secondly, AWS Data Exchange requires customers to explicitly agree to the Data Subscription Agreement outlining the terms that the data provider set when publishing their product, whereas the data on the Registry of Open Data on AWS does not have terms of use. Thirdly, customers must use the AWS Data Exchange API to copy data from AWS Data Exchange to their desired S3 location, whereas the Registry of Open Data on AWS data sets are accessed via S3 APIs. Fourthly, AWS Data Exchange delivers data providers access to daily, weekly and monthly reports detailing subscription activity, whereas with Registry of Open Data on AWS, data providers must analyze their own logs to track usage of data. Finally, to become a data provider on AWS Data Exchange, qualified customers must register as a data provider on AWS Marketplace to be eligible to list both free and commercial products, whereas any customer can add free data to Registry of Open Data on AWS via GitHub and may apply to the AWS Public Dataset Program for AWS to sponsor the costs of storage and bandwidth for select open data sets.
