Today, consumer expectations are ever evolving. As more consumers consider e-commerce, it’s increasingly important for companies to address the emissions stemming from the last leg of a product’s journey to a consumer’s doorstep to help achieve global climate targets. According to GreenPrint’s 2021 Business of Sustainability Index, 77% of Americans are concerned about the environmental impact of their purchases, and 73% will use a product’s environmental friendliness as a factor in their purchasing decision.
Great things are happening when it comes to the health of our planet. With increased attention on environmental sustainability, companies are becoming more conscious of their operations and are implementing sustainable practices into their overall strategy. Many brands are working to make changes to mitigate the global climate crisis, create sustainable consumer packaged goods, and explore opportunities in ESG (environmental, social, and governance).
