Sustainability by the numbers

See how Amazon is working toward a sustainable future.
The well-being of our employees and guests are of paramount importance to us. Due to an abundance of caution and following developments relating to preventive measures taken for health in the region regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to pause all fulfillment center tours in North America. We look forward to re-opening the program once there is more clarity on the global health situation.

Thank you for your understanding.

Several orange robots are pictured in a Fulfillment Center as they help move products across the floor.
The game changed for Amazon in 2012 when we started introducing robotics into our fulfillment centers. These robotic drive units bring storage pods of inventory directly to our associates, who easily pick customer orders and get them out the door. Today we have more than 100,000 of these drive units operating in 26 of our fulfillment centers around the world.
At Amazon, we are committed to and invested in sustainability because it’s a win all around. It’s good for business, the planet, our customers, and our communities.
