Sustainable Operations

We are reducing Amazon’s carbon footprint across all of our business operations and leading the way for other companies to decarbonize worldwide. With the introduction of electric vehicles, Amazon India aims to reduce carbon emissions and environmental impact of delivery operations. Amazon India has been working with several Indian original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to build a fleet of vehicles that ensure sustainable and safe deliveries of customer orders.
