A booming business
In 2020, over two billion people worldwide made purchases online, amounting to 4.29 trillion USD in global sales—a 24.1% jump over the previous year. But the speed, comfort, and convenience that are driving ecommerce’s massive growth pose an imminent threat to our planet, with packaging, shipping, and last-mile logistics leaving a heavy carbon footprint behind.
Aligned with your values
Retailers large and small—along with ecommerce platforms, software tools, and last-mile delivery services—can enable a more sustainable ecommerce industry by measuring and neutralizing shipping and embodied product emissions. The option to neutralize carbon can be offered to consumers at the point of sale or carried out on their behalf, setting a strong example and pushing the industry forward.
