In 2019, 15 retail companies—including industry leaders Amazon, IKEA, Target and Walmart—produced the following pollution:
As much climate pollution (carbon dioxide) as three coal-fired power plants or the energy needed to power 1.5 million American homes.
As much smog-forming nitrous oxide (NOx) as 27.4 million cars. Many American ports, such as the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach, are currently at risk of violating the Clean Air Act because the smog-forming NOx pollution from shipping, in particular, is so high.
Over 7 times more sulfur oxide (SOx) pollution than all on-road vehicles in the United States combined – that’s over 2 billion cars and trucks.
As much particulate matter PM2.5 pollution as 65.7 million cars and trucks.
