Amazon’s Sustainability organization points Amazon’s innovative culture at environmental and social impacts with enormous scale. We consider the full lifecycle of our impact, from supply chain to customer experience, operational efficiency to waste diversion. We take action to improve the impact Amazon has on the environment, looking for wins that are good for our customers and our business as well. Sustainability Science is a team of environmental and social research scientists and product managers answering core sustainability questions for the larger organization and looking around corners to identify long term environmental and social hotspots.
