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.
We are committed to assessing our impact and focusing our efforts in these key areas.
Safe workplacesWorkers are entitled to safe and healthy workplaces.
Freely chosen employmentAll work should be voluntary; no worker should have to pay for a job.
Empowering womenQuality jobs for women translate to positive impacts for communities.
Fair wagesWages should meet workers’ basic needs.
Environmental protectionSafeguarding the environment protects workers and their communities.
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.
See how we put our scale and inventive culture to work on building a sustainable future.
