How Can I Make My Amazon Business More Sustainable?

As a society, we have been working toward becoming better stewards of our planet for years. But we still have a long way to go before we can heal the damage we have wrought. One of the ways we can get closer to our sustainability goals is by understanding exactly what sustainability means. For more information on how you can make your Amazon business more sustainable, please read on, then reach out to AVASK Group today.

What constitutes sustainability?

Sustainability comes down to a single guiding principle: “Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.”

In succinct terms, sustainability involves focusing actions on satisfying current needs, while ensuring future generations will have the ability to meet their needs as well.

What steps can you take to make your Amazon business more sustainable?

You have many ways to make your business more sustainable, but the following areas tend to receive the most attention:

  • Waste reduction: Going paperless with e-billing or saving documents to a hard drive rather than printing them out.
  • Pollution prevention: Buying and using energy-efficient devices like laptops, light bulbs and printers.
  • Clean and renewable energy: Moving toward renewable energy by installing solar panels or using wind energy to power your office.
  • Water conservation: Doing a water audit to see how much water your business actually uses, then making changes accordingly.
  • Green the planet: Offset your carbon footprint by reducing, reusing and recycling and using green refrigerants and appliances.
  • Sustainable products and packaging: Creating a product that is more energy-efficient or using compostable or recyclable materials for packaging.
  • Engage others: Involving your employees in your sustainability program and explaining to customers how to properly discard your product/packaging
