Amazon launches a line of special labels for products and brands committed to the Planet.
Online shoppers will be able to see the new “Climate Pledge Friendly” label on over 25,000 products, which have one or more of the 19 sustainability certifications.
The new label will be shown on products and brands that reduce the carbon footprint of their shipments, revolutionising transport operators (cargo airlines, sea shipping, road transport and the last urban mile).
Aiming to achieve zero emissions in 50% of deliveries by 2030, transport and parcel operators will be compelled to participate in the new model.
Brands willing to be part of the Amazon ecosystem will need to take steps to neutralise the remaining emissions with carbon footprint offsets.
The companies signing The Climate Pledge commit to three major blocks of action in line with the ultimate goal of Carbon Neutrality.
1. Emissions reduction
The first commitment is to effectively decarbonise their operations and supply chain aligned with the Paris Agreement through innovation and real change, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, material reduction and other carbon elimination strategies.
2. Offsetting CO2 emissions
The second commitment is to implement a voluntary offsetting programme for CO2 emissions which have not been able to be reduced after turning their processes into more efficient.
Selecting projects in developing countries in line with their values, with the ultimate aim of achieving carbon neutrality by 2040.
The third and final commitment is the regular public reporting on the progress of their greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction commitments and targets.
