More sustainable items are becoming the preference of American customers when making judgments about what to buy. A research conducted by Amazon Ads in 2023 found that 63% of American consumers actively search for brands that use sustainable business methods.

Motivated by this dedication, Amazon introduced the Climate Pledge Friendly (CPF) initiative, assisting consumers in locating products that bear certifications from both first- and third-party sustainability bodies.

During Earth Month, on April 15, Amazon Ads and CPF will introduce Climate Pledge Friendly Day. The new CPF event page will host this 24-hour event, which will offer discounts to customers on CPF products in a variety of verticals (e.g., groceries, beauty, home, electronics). Through a fresh, updated on-site experience, Amazon Ads and CPF will make it easier for shoppers to find and purchase for CPF products both before and during Earth Month. This is an attempt to fulfill consumer demand for browsing more environmentally friendly items and learning about the CPF program.

“This event will make it easier for our customers to find CPF-badged products in April as they are looking for more sustainable items,” stated Nancy Wine, director of U.S. advertisements for groceries.

In addition to new on-site sponsorships, advertisers will have the chance to interact with consumers during Earth Month and CPF Day by promoting their CPF products and/or sustainable initiatives. A range of display, video, and audio packages across Amazon Ads solutions will also be available to help brands tell their story. This covers options like Wondery, IMDb, Sponsored Twitch Streams, Stream It Forward, personalized Amazon Music playlists, and more.
