ESG in the ecommerce industry is a relatively new industry and provides an array of firms that have online marketplaces for businesses or consumers to buy or sell goods and services. Retailers and wholesalers may also provide and exclusive e-commerce platform to provide their goods and services. The nature of ecommerce to allow for location to become less of an obstacle has made it a highly competitive environment for sellers, benefitting consumers tremendously. Many existing brick and mortar businesses are transitioning to become hybrid or solely ecommerce platforms to ensure that they can increase their market share and total revenues.
Ecommerce platforms are increasingly being scrutinised by governments for their ability to avoid certain regulations and tax. This has caused for a growing popularity to increase the regulation in the industry due to its highly unregulated nature when compared to the brick and mortar industries.
