Sustainable e-commerce

Green your e-commerce

The explosive growth of e-commerce has transformed retail. Consumers increasingly turn to e-commerce to research, compare and purchase products day-or-night from sellers all over the world. The latest data indicates that 95% of global consumers with internet access have made an online purchase.

However, with the growth of e-commerce also comes the growth of its impact on our environment. The making, selling, use, and disposal of products is putting tremendous and unsustainable pressure on our health and the environment. And shining a spotlight on the role e-commerce leaders can and must play in driving a safer, more sustainable marketplace.

E-commerce businesses have the responsibility, influence, and opportunity to advance safer, more sustainable consumer products and supply chains. Companies ready to lead can capture a growing consumer base, bolster consumer trust, and future-proof their operations. EDF is here to help you get started.
