Impact of Online Convenience Services: Is it convenient for all?
It is widely believed that what can be measured can be improved. Our rising demands for convenience have created a whole ecosystem on consumer product and service delivery systems. While efficiencies of delivery are constantly being improved upon, to reduce time to delivery, the environmental impact of the delivery ecosystems are generally not looked at. From single use packaging to last mile connectivity, these services play an impact on the environment and therefore on climate change. This report aims to look at this impact through a measurable metric (carbon footprinting) in various sub categories of consumer delivery systems in North America, Europe and Asia primarily while observing trends as to where these markets are headed towards while exploring some of the prevalent solutions to reduce the carbon footprint available today. In the present day, our busy schedules mean that we need a lot of things delivered to where we are. This report looks at how some of the online convenience services have been classified, how they have grown and what the impact of such services has been on our ecosystem.
