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 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 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 is hosting development of the new Open Source Climate Data Commons service, operated by the non-profit Linux Foundation OS-Climate, to help businesses and governments quantify and manage climate-related risks. The OS-Climate Data Commons, co-developed by AWS with industry partners, will help organizations understand how climate change will impact their assets and operations, and how to mitigate risks.
