Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) Chief Executive Jeff Bezos unveiled a climate-change plan for the retailer that will meet the goals of the United Nations Paris Agreement 10 years ahead of schedule. 

The plan, disclosed at an event held at the National Press Club in Washington, responds to a employee proposal at the annual meeting in May to develop a comprehensive climate-change plan to reduce the Seattle company's carbon footprint. 

The plan comes a day ahead of a planned walkout at numerous tech companies by employees concerned about global climate change 

Workers at Alphabet (GOOG - Get Report) , Amazon, Facebook (FB - Get Report) and Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) reportedly are set to walk off the job to pressure the tech industry to do more to address climate change. 

"This will be the first time that Amazon workers at corporate offices are walking out, and it's the first walkout in the tech industry over the climate crisis," states a release from the Amazon worker group.
