  • "Strive to be Earth’s Best Employer" says that leaders "work every day to create a safer, more productive, higher performing, more diverse, and more just work environment."
  • The "Success and Scale Bring Broad Responsibility" principle says Amazon needs to "be humble and thoughtful about even the secondary effects" of the company's actions on local communities, the planet, and future generations.
