Amazon social responsibility

About our supply chain
Our mission is for our products to be made in a way that respects human rights and the environment.
  • We set a high bar for ourselves and our suppliers. Our Supply Chain Standards detail the requirements and expectations for suppliers in our supply chain, and suppliers must contractually commit to these standards as a condition of doing business with us.
  • Our Supply Chain Standards Manual provides guidance and resources to suppliers of Amazon branded products on how to meet and exceed the expectations outlined in our Supply Chain Standards.
Key commitments
We are committed to assessing our impact and focusing our efforts in these key areas.
  • Safe workplaces
    Workers are entitled to safe and healthy workplaces.
  • Freely chosen employment
    All work should be voluntary; no worker should have to pay for a job.
  • Empowering women
    Quality jobs for women translate to positive impacts for communities.
  • Fair wages
    Wages should meet workers’ basic needs.
  • Environmental protection
    Safeguarding the environment protects workers and their communities.
Partnerships
The complex, persistent challenges in working conditions cannot be solved alone; improving supply chains requires collaboration. We are members of, or work closely with, these groups and initiatives.
