Does the platform perform ethical checks on the traders who list product (the way that large established retailers currently do and are increasingly mandated to do)?
i.e. No child labour, no modern slavery, appropriate pollution controls, avoidance of “tainted” inputs (e.g. grown on land that has been deforested for the purpose), sustainable claims (e.g. organic cotton) validated etc. etc.
And how would the platform fare with dealing with forthcoming requirements from EU on emissions declarations/product passport?
Significant gap if it does not, Yes I know that people ordering direct on some platforms may be ordering without benefit of this ethical certainty.
