With the rapid development of e-commerce, the express industry in China has shown explosive growth. In 2018, China's express business exceeded 50 billion units, an increase of 26.6% over the same period last year. It is expected that the express delivery business will exceed 60 billion units in 2019. At the same time, there are a large number of express packaging garbage, and more and more extensive over-packaging pollution and waste of resources.
Express packaging mainly includes express waybill, woven bags, plastic bags, envelopes, corrugated cartons, tape, etc. According to the statistics of the State Post Office, in 2016, China's express industry will use 32.18 billion express waybills and electronic express waybills, 14.7 billion plastic bags, 3.4 billion envelopes and 8.6 billion packing boxes. These packages can not be recycled, or can not be degraded, or are overused, or are discarded at will by consumers, which not only destroys the living environment, but also causes serious waste of resources, affecting the sustainable development of industries and enterprises.

Zhang Jindong, deputy of the National People's Congress and chairman of Suning Holdings Group, revealed that the scale of fresh e-commerce market in China increased from 4.05 billion yuan in 2012 to 91.39 billion yuan in 2016, with a compound growth rate of 118%, and is expected to reach 470 billion yuan by 2020. Nearly 300 million foam boxes and 1 billion ice bags are produced each year, and they are basically not recyclable.
At present, various social enterprises have actively carried out innovative exploration of green packaging.
For this reason, according to interviews with experts, Newsweek summed up five aspects of governance measures.
The first is to clarify the responsibilities of the government and implement organizational safeguards.
Second, refine product standards and process standards to ensure that enterprises have rules to follow.
Third, adhere to the green packaging policy, and promote enterprises to reduce packaging pollution.
Fourthly, we should improve the awareness of pollution prevention and control and create a social environment that advocates green packaging.
Fifth, promote the classification and disposal of domestic waste and strengthen recycling.
