Sustainable packaging is a top priority at Amazon. We’re using less packaging material, and we’re working to shrink the packaging to fit what you order more often. Our team of engineers calculated how much material we can remove from paper boxes while ensuring each delivery arrives undamaged. When our packaging uses less material, weighs less, and is the right size to protect customer orders, we can pack more orders into each delivery, resulting in fewer trips, less fuel burned— all of which minimize our carbon footprint. We are committed to sustainability because we care about planet earth. We remain steadfast in our focus on meeting The Climate Pledge—our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint and become net zero carbon by 2040.
