Facial recognition technology could lead to your wrongful arrest or include you in a huge criminal database.

Amazon’s commitment to The Climate Pledge means that we are focused—first and foremost—on decarbonizing our operations and sending strong signals that we are in need of new solutions and technologies to help accelerate our path to net zero carbon by 2040.
