In recent years, e-commerce has been expanding rapidly as consumers have become increasingly confident in ordering goods and services online. The number of businesses engaged in business to consumer (B2C) e-commerce is constantly growing. Between 2018 and 2020, online retail sales, a subset of the B2C total, rose by 41% in major economies, compared to less than a 1% rise in total retail sales. The increase was fuelled by the COVID-19 pandemic, as consumers ordered online during lockdowns and to avoid frequenting shops. During the pandemic, the online environment also became a more popular target for illicit trade.

These issues are becoming increasingly important in politics, in business and in public debate. In 2019, the European Commission established that action on climate change was now a priority, promising to deliver a European Green Deal with the aim of making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. In this study, the Goods & Services descriptions in the 2 million EUTM applications – filed at the EUIPO since it began operation in 1996 – are analysed for the presence of terms that can be said to be related to the protection of the environment and sustainability....Vähem
