Plastics emit 3.4 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and generate over 300 million tons of waste each year, almost half of it from packaging. We cannot solve this industry-wide challenge by only looking at the materials and system solutions of today. We require disruptive new innovations and technologies that will enable new approaches to solve this problem. At Amazon, we are leveraging our size and scale to address plastic waste and decarbonize plastic materials used in our global business. Through our innovation work, we are identifying and partnering with emerging breakthrough technologies, such as AMP Robotics, Genecis, and Novamont. It’s our vision to bring these types of stakeholders together to create an alternative future for plastics.
