The Worldwide Sustainability (WWS) organization capitalizes on Amazon’s scale and speed to build a more resilient and sustainable company. We manage our social and environmental impacts globally, and drive solutions that enable our customers, businesses, and the world to become more sustainable.

Amazon’s Social Responsibility program drives customer trust, business continuity, and sustainable social impact by embedding respect for human rights and the environment throughout Amazon’s entire value chain. We implement company-wide standards and commitments such as our Global Human Rights Principles (GHRP) and Supply Chain Standards (SCS). We seek to continuously improve the tools and processes used in integrating human rights and environmental due diligence across the business.

This individual will provide guidance and decisions pertaining to the risk interpretation of supplier compliance data.

As the subject matter expert, you will be responsible for conducting gap analyses on our internal tools, making judgement calls when uncertainty arises, and helping stakeholders to understand how Amazon’s Supply Chain Standards are applied.

– Manage incoming cases systematically, create solutions for complex escalations and proactively implement processes to resolve negative service trends
