It was on the site of an old Toys ‘R’ Us store in the middle of the pandemic that Amazon launched a renewed assault on the one market that has resisted its rise — and on the one company that can claim to have done as much to shape how Americans shop. The first Amazon Fresh supermarket opened last September in an upmarket part of Los Angeles. Since the debut in Woodland Hills, Amazon has added at least a dozen across the US, with several more under construction.
Taking advantage of frothy debt markets, not to mention extremely low interest rates, Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) is apparently floating $18.5 billion in debt securities. According to those sources, Amazon sold that amount of bonds in eight tranches. Once a model of an ambitious yet chronically loss-making disruptor, Amazon has become consistently profitable.
Amazon.com Inc issued its first sustainability bond on Monday, raising $1 billion to invest in renewable energy, clean transport, greener buildings and affordable housing. The world's biggest company joins a growing list of debt issuers tapping the market for green and sustainable bonds, which is swelling as asset managers come under pressure from their investors to advance environmental, social and governance (ESG) causes. Global green bond issuance reached a record high of $270 billion at the end of 2020 and could reach $450 billion this year, according to Climate Bonds Initiative.
