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.

Under this new rule, companies would also have to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).

Plastic trash is polluting our environment. We are flooded with statistics about what this evasive material is doing to our oceans and wildlife. But we can’t become numb to the problem.
