Rodrigo Prudencio, co-founder of Amazon’s $2bn Climate Pledge Fund, has left the company, according to a LinkedIn post.

Prudencio launched the sustainability-focused fund in 2020. The investment vehicle is part of the e-commerce company’s goal to reach net zero carbon by 2040.

He also led Amazon’s Alexa Fund, a CVC focused on a broad range of technologies.

Before joining Amazon, Prudencio headed the US-based venture capital strategy for GS Shop, a Korean consumer products channel.
