      "We believe that nature-based solutions such as conservation, restoration, and improved land management actions play a necessary and complementary role alongside eliminating carbon from business activities. These solutions increase carbon storage or reduce greenhouse gas emissions in forests, wetlands, grasslands, farmland, and marine environments. They also provide additional benefits to preserve the natural world, such as conserving wildlife habitats, protecting biodiversity, improving water quality, and reducing flood risk. All of these benefits can enhance well-being in communities around the world. [...] Amazon is focused on driving large-scale transformations in nature that are critical for achieving the Paris Agreement goals. Our focus on reducing deforestation recognizes that a continuation of current rates of deforestation over the next decade would put the Paris Agreement targets out of reach no matter what companies do in their own operations [...] Priorities for reduced deforestation investments • Jurisdictional scale. We will finance real reductions in deforestation and forest degradation emissions across entire landscapes where forest protection is underpinned by effective and enduring government policy. We will also seek to support project-based efforts in locations with outsized benefits for local people and biodiversity, especially where those projects are nested in a jurisdictional-scale program."

      "The agroforestry and restoration initiative kicks off in the Brazilian state of Pará, home to 9% of the world’s tropical forest. Pará is part of the Amazon rainforest, and it's facing unprecedented deforestation rates—losing 3,300 acres of forest land every day over the last year. Amazon and The Nature Conservancy are working closely with communities to restore native rainforest through the Accelerator, while also opening up a more sustainable source of income for thousands of local farmers in Pará. [...] Our team is working closely with The Nature Conservancy and other local civil society organizations on the Accelerator by helping small-scale farmers restore degraded cattle pastures to native forest and agroforestry. The Accelerator also provides farmers with sustainable income through the sales of cocoa and other crops, and will support 3,000 farmers and restore approximately 20,000 hectares of land—a land mass approximately the size of Seattle—within three years. This initiative aims to remove up to 10 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere between now and 2050, equivalent to one year of emissions from 2 million cars on the road."

We, like many companies in similar industries, are exploring new ways to encourage improvement in worker protections. This includes supporting suppliers’ efforts to improve their grievance mechanisms, supplier capacity-building programs, worker trainings, and collaborations with other brands and civil society.

Suppliers are required to disclose any subcontractors or labor agents upon request. They are also expected to hold their subcontractors, and labor agents to the standards and practices covered by our Supplier Code. Suppliers with subcontracted production are required to work with their subcontractors to adopt and raise awareness of this Supplier Code. We recognize that suppliers in deeper tiers of the supply chain and suppliers in informal sectors may take more time to align with these standards. We are committed to working with suppliers to help them understand our policies. While we expect these suppliers to meet all applicable aspects of the Supplier Code, the size and structure of the suppliers (e.g., family farms, smallholders, homeworkers), will be taken into consideration when implementing these requirements."

This includes supporting suppliers’ efforts to improve their grievance mechanisms, supplier capacity-building programs, worker trainings, and collaborations with other brands and civil society.

We believe the LEAF Coalition has the potential to be truly transformational in the effort to conserve the world’s tropical forests [...] Priorities for reduced deforestation investments • Jurisdictional scale. We will finance real reductions in deforestation and forest degradation emissions across entire landscapes where forest protection is underpinned by effective and enduring government policy. We will also seek to support project-based efforts in locations with outsized benefits for local people and biodiversity, especially where those projects are nested in a jurisdictional-scale program."

          "We are strongly committed to ensuring that the products and services we provide are produced in a way that respects human rights and the environment, and protects the fundamental dignity of workers. We engage with suppliers that are committed to these same principles, and we set exacting standards for suppliers of goods and services for Amazon and Amazon’s subsidiaries.

We also expect all suppliers of goods and services to Amazon to comply with the Supplier Code, even when this Supplier Code exceeds the requirements of applicable law...Amazon does not tolerate the use of child labor...Amazon suppliers must not use forced labor—slave, prison, indentured, bonded, or otherwise. Amazon does not tolerate suppliers that traffic workers or in any other way exploit workers by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction, or fraud...Suppliers are required to pay their workers in a timely manner and provide compensation (including overtime pay and benefits) that, at a minimum, satisfy applicable laws...Amazon expects suppliers to regularly monitor working hours to ensure the safety, health, and welfare of workers. Except in special or emergency situations, (i) suppliers are required to limit working hours to no more than 60 hours per week, including overtime, and (ii) each worker must be entitled to at least one day off for every seven-day work period.

          "In our supply chain, we assess and respond to risk by leveraging internal and external data and guidance from external stakeholders, including industry experts, civil society groups, and NGOs. We engage directly with suppliers and their workers and conduct independent audits to verify compliance with our Supply Chain Standards. We also work with suppliers on appropriate remediation measures and offer partnerships and programs to help them address risks and invest in worker well-being. We recognize that audits alone are insufficient to drive longterm change across industries. We, like many companies in similar industries, are exploring new ways to encourage improvement in worker protections. This includes supporting suppliers’ efforts to improve their grievance mechanisms, supplier capacity-building programs, worker trainings, and collaborations with other brands and civil society. We currently focus our supply chain efforts on key commitment areas: Safe Workplaces, Freely Chosen Employment, Gender Equity, Fair Wages, Environmental Protection, and Grievance Mechanisms"

          "We believe ending deforestation requires effective government policy that protects forests and provides for sustainable livelihoods—not just in select plots of forest but across entire landscapes within a government’s jurisdiction. Amazon’s participation in the Lowering Emissions by Accelerating Forest finance (LEAF) Coalition is an example of this approach [...] LEAF is backed by the governments of the United States, United Kingdom, and Norway, as well as a growing number of climate-leading corporations, and has support from the United Nations Environment Programme and other environmental and social non-profit organizations. We believe the LEAF Coalition has the potential to be truly transformational in the effort to conserve the world’s tropical forests [...] Priorities for reduced deforestation investments • Jurisdictional scale. We will finance real reductions in deforestation and forest degradation emissions across entire landscapes where forest protection is underpinned by effective and enduring government policy. We will also seek to support project-based efforts in locations with outsized benefits for local people and biodiversity, especially where those projects are nested in a jurisdictional-scale program."

          "Supply chain accountability: In order to ensure these standards are cascaded throughout our supply chain, we expect suppliers to consistently monitor and enforce these standards in their own operations and supply chain, as well as make improvements to meet or exceed our expectations and those of our customers as reflected in our Supplier Code. Suppliers are required to disclose any subcontractors or labor agents upon request. They are also expected to hold their subcontractors, and labor agents to the standards and practices covered by our Supplier Code. Suppliers with subcontracted production are required to work with their subcontractors to adopt and raise awareness of this Supplier Code. We recognize that suppliers in deeper tiers of the supply chain and suppliers in informal sectors may take more time to align with these standards. We are committed to working with suppliers to help them understand our policies. While we expect these suppliers to meet all applicable aspects of the Supplier Code, the size and structure of the suppliers (e.g., family farms, smallholders, homeworkers), will be taken into consideration when implementing these requirements."

Profile

Amazon is an online retailer offering products purchased for resale from vendors and third-party sellers. Through subsidiary Whole Foods Market, Inc., the company also retails in food across its stores. The breadth of its retail market means it is exposed to several forest risk commodities. Amazon is selected as a powerbroker for palm oil, soy, beef, leather and pulp & paper and is also assessed for its exposure to timber.
