贝奥斯has not revealed any additional details about the initiative since February.

The Bezos Earth Fund is one of the largest single philanthropic gifts in history but many questions about the effort remain. Philanthropy and environmental experts are particularly curious about the period of time in which the $10 billion will be donated.

“Ten billion dollars is a giant figure and so just by itself, that makes a big difference,” Stacy Palmer, editor of the independent news organization The Chronicle of Philanthropy, told GeekWire earlier this year. “But if it’s $10 billion that’s going to be spent over 20 years, that’s really different than $10 billion spent in one year for immediate projects or for research or for advocacy.”

对于他们的大部分历史,亚马逊和贝佐斯在没有更具意识的慈善战略的情况下对大量财富进行了批评。一些批评来自于内部;该公司的技术人员将亚马逊员工为气候正义致力于倡导更积极的可持续发展政策。

近年来,亚马逊和贝佐斯在近年来近年来越来越认真。狗万平台

Last year Amazoncreated the Climate Pledge旨在提前10年的10年来满足巴黎气候变化协定的目标,并鼓励其他公司做同样的事情。然后亚马逊通过宣布它惊讶的西雅图买了命名权利以前是王国主义的竞技场。体育场现在将被称为气候质量竞技场。

贝奥斯is also using his personal fortune to fund new philanthropic initiatives. In 2018 heunveiled the $2 billion Day One Fundto promote innovations in preschool education and affordable housing.

监管申请表明贝佐斯周一在亚马逊股市出售了约30亿美元。贝奥斯在2017年说that he was selling $1 billion a year to fund his Blue Origin space venture, but he has been increasing the size and frequency of the stock sales.
