Things Amazon Employees Are Banned From Doing

| Published on January 7, 2020

World is quite different, and epic too! Everyone has different problems, different reactions and different perceptions.

Here in India, we can’t even think of protesting against our CEO or company for practising unfriendly environment policies, but at the same time, a parallel world in the U.S.A. is running, where employees of big companies like Google, Apple and Amazon are calling their CEOs to go green.

And when it becomes too much, you can get fired too. This is somewhat similar happened last week.
According to a report by The Washington Post,

“Amazon has sent a warning to at least two employees who publicly criticised the company’s environmental policies that they could be fired for future violations of its communications policy.”

A group of workers under the name Amazon Employees for Climate Justice tweeted that the company has threatened to fire them if they speak about climate change.

The group tweeted, “Jeff Bezos and Amazon executives are threatening to fire a few members of our group after we spoke up about wanting our company to be a leader in the worldwide effort to avert climate catastrophe.”

Responding to this Amazon spokesperson told The Washington Post that the company’s communication policy for employees isn’t new. He also said that employees are encouraged to work within their teams, including by suggesting improvements to how we operate through those internal channels.

Well, we don’t know from whose point of view we should look at this situation, but if you are creating troubles for your employer, obviously you are not going to be welcomed by the company.

Just to inform our readers, Amazon took quite big steps last year to reduce its carbon emission to what they call as “Climate Pledge.” Amazon has agreed to purchase 100,000 electric delivery vans from vehicle manufacturer Rivian. Jeff Bezos, CEO, Amazon, expects 80% of Amazon’s energy use to come from renewable sources by 2024, up from a current rate of 40%, before transitioning to zero emissions by 2030.
