The onset of COVID-19 and its dramatic impact on the world has accelerated and emphasised many existing trends and developments, particularly in the e-commerce market.
Sustainability as standard
Sustainability has gone from being a buzzword to an expectation as environmental concerns are increasingly important to consumers; with more money to spend, many shoppers want to be sure they are investing their money ethically.
e-PAQ – sustainability in e-commerce
Sustainability is no longer a niche market. Increasingly, shoppers will scrutinise retailers based on their green credentials before making a purchase. Research by Doddle shows that 77% of online shoppers care deeply about the environment when thinking about how they receive their deliveries and 56% of consumers aged 18 to 24 would be persuaded to buy from a competitor who offered a more sustainable fulfilment option.
With e-PAQ, Asendia has been able to align its delivery solutions with its sustainability policy. Parcels to France and Switzerland are 100% Carbon Neutral when added directly into the La Poste or Swiss Post networks. Furthermore, all Asendia transport emissions on parcels within Europe, and from Europe to other continents, are now being offset. Asendia has set a high bar on sustainability and is committed to doing more as time goes on.
E-tailers who want to fulfil their customers’ desire for sustainable delivery, or those who simply want to reduce their carbon footprint, need look no further than e-PAQ.
