Our global operations footprint
Amazon has begun hosting large-scale rooftop solar systems on fulfillment centers. Our goal is to have more than 50 fulfillment centers globally with rooftop solar installed by 2020. The solar systems in the initial deployment could generate as much as 41 MW of power.
We put our scale and inventive culture to work on sustainability and protecting the environment.
In 2015, Amazon announced the construction of Amazon Solar Farm U.S. East, Amazon Wind Farm (Fowler Ridge) and Amazon Wind Farm U.S. East. The energy produced from these projects is enough to power roughly the equivalent of 150,000 U.S. homes, which is slightly larger than the size of the city of Cleveland, Ohio.
At Amazon, we work hard to ensure that every Amazon product our customers buy is made in a way that ensures respect for the rights of workers in Amazon’s supply chain and throughout our operations. Our teams work on a continuous improvement model, researching and identifying risks in places where we source and operate, and designing programs to ensure that we build the capability to understand and mitigate those risks.
We want to optimise the overall customer packaging experience. This includes driving improvements in the sustainability of packaging across Amazon’s supply chain, starting with our own packaging and our own operations.
We aim to be Earth’s most customer centric company. Our mission is to continually raise the bar of the customer experience by using the internet and technology to help customers find, discover and buy anything, and empower businesses and content creators to maximise their success.
Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging is a multi-year initiative designed to alleviate 'wrap rage'--the frustration of trying to free a product from a nearly impenetrable package. Using recyclable boxes that are easy to open and free of excess materials, Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging is designed to be opened without the use of a box cutter or knife and will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging.
