Amazon launched a new program that places Climate Pledge Friendly labels on more than 25,000 items. The label is designed to make it easier for customers to find more sustainable products, CEO Jeff Bezos said.
- Products that receive the label have at least one of 19 sustainability certifications, including Amazon's own Compact by Design certification.
- The items are specially marked in shopping search results and include additional sustainability data on their product page. They're also featured in a dedicated section on Amazon.com.
- In June, Amazon announced plans to launch its $2b Climate Pledge Fund, a venture capital fund to invest in companies geared toward sustainable development and climate change reduction. The program is part of Amazon's pledge to become net carbon neutral by 2040.
