From the associates in our fulfilment centres, to the drivers delivering packages to our customers, to the factory workers making the products we sell – people are critical to our mission of being earth’s most customer-centric company.

We are committed to embedding respect for human rights throughout our business.
Many of the cross-cutting sustainability issues that we prioritise at Amazon are enhanced via partnerships and collaborative initiatives with credible, knowledgeable and innovative industry partners.
