Reducing waste in packaging
We use extensive testing, machine learning, materials innovation and partnerships with manufacturers to reduce packaging waste throughout the supply chain.
Amazon’s mission is to optimise the overall customer experience by collaborating with manufacturers worldwide to invent sustainable packaging that delights customers, eliminates waste and ensures that products arrive intact and undamaged.
Circular economy
We are minimising waste, increasing recycling and providing options for our customers to participate in the circular economy.
