Amazon Sustainability Data Initiative
The Amazon Sustainability Data Initiative (ASDI) seeks to accelerate sustainability research and innovation by minimizing the cost and time required to acquire and analyze large sustainability datasets. ASDI supports innovators and researchers with the data, tools, and technical expertise they need to move sustainability to the next level.
AWS Data Exchange
AWS Data Exchange makes 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) data, public, weather, air quality, satellite imagery data, and much more available to customers.
AWS Customer Carbon Footprint Tool
The customer carbon footprint tool is a dashboard providing an overview of the carbon emissions associated with your usage of AWS products and services. Use easy-to-understand data visualizations to report on the emissions from your AWS usage following Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol standards.
With the customer carbon footprint tool you can analyze the changes in your emissions over time as you migrate workloads to AWS, re-architect applications, or deprecate unused resources. You can also plan for the future and forecast how your emissions will change as Amazon progresses toward powering operations with 100% renewable energy.
AWS Well-Architected Sustainability Pillar
The AWS Well-Architected Framework describes key concepts, design principles, and architectural best practices for designing and running workloads in the cloud. By answering a few foundational questions, learn how well your architecture aligns with cloud best practices and gain guidance for making improvements.
The sustainability pillar focuses on minimizing the environmental impacts of running cloud workloads. Key topics include a shared responsibility model for sustainability, understanding impact, and maximizing utilization to minimize required resources and reduce downstream impacts.
AWS Graviton Instances
AWS Graviton processors are designed by AWS to deliver the best performance per watt of energy use in Amazon EC2 and the best price performance for a broad range of workloads. Graviton-based Amazon EC2 instances help customers reduce their carbon footprint by using up to 60% less energy for the same performance as comparable x86-based instances, while also providing up to 40% better price performance. AWS Graviton-based instances are also available in popular managed AWS services such as Amazon Aurora, Amazon ElastiCache, Amazon EMR, Amazon MemoryDB for Redis, Amazon OpenSearch, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), Amazon SageMaker, AWS Fargate, and AWS Lambda.
Amazon EC2 Spot Instances
Amazon EC2 Spot Instances let you take advantage of unused EC2 capacity, which helps AWS improve data center utilization. Spot Instances provide up to a 90% discount compared to On-Demand prices and can be used for various stateless, fault-tolerant, or flexible applications. Spot offers the ability to run hyperscale workloads at a significant cost savings and helps AWS operate more efficiently.
