Yesterday, more than 1,000 employees gathered in front of Amazon's headquarters in Seattle to protest against the company's decision to abolish the home office. Amazon had requested its employees to work in the office for at least three days a week starting from May 1st.


The protests also targeted Amazon's climate goals, which the employees demanded to be more rigorously implemented. One of Amazon's climate goals called "Shipment Zero," aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, has been postponed and is now set for 2040.


However, Amazon reiterated its commitment to transitioning to 100% renewable energy by 2025. A company spokesperson emphasized the importance of reaching these goals as quickly as possible while acknowledging the need for more time.


In the past six months, a total of 27,000 employees were laid off to reduce costs. The elimination of the home office is part of these cost-cutting measures and aimed at increasing transparency within the company.
