Amazon started as online book store and has grown to be the worlds largest online retailer.
Amazon sustainable shipments to put environment first
Amazon sustainable shipments initiative looks set to parcels delivery to customer zero carbon. The scheme aims to make 50% of all Amazon shipments with net zero carbon by 2030.
Amazon say that their ‘Shipment Zero’ project won’t be easy to achieve. However, they say it would be worth to be focused and stubborn on the vision to see it manifest.
The move follows Amazon’s two-year project which identified their carbon footprint. Amazon’s business teams will use the information to help them reduce carbon use in deliveries.
Amazon’s team of 200 scientists, engineers and products designers will put to work their expertise to design ‘green’ delivery “for the good of customers and the planet.”
The company say that they will continue to use their dominant position and customers’ feedback to encourage suppliers up and down their supply chain to reduce their own environmental impact. Amazon have done a similar eco-friendly job in their ‘Ship in Own Container and Frustration Free Packaging’ scheme. The initiative now see Amazon working with brands and manufacturers to have products repackaged so that they reduce package waste and more practical to use.
Amazon say that they will be tracking and sharing their progress on their environmentally-friendly journey.
