HOUSTON, Texas, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Global Clean Energy, Inc. (OTC PINK: GCEI), has diversified its operations in Waste 2 Fuels and PGM with its recently acquired new digital business as E-commerce sales grew to $341.7 billion in 2015, a 14.6% increase over 2014's $298.3 billion, according to estimates released by the U.S. Department of Commerce. E-commerce accounted for 60.4% of total retail sales growth.
The US Commerce Department estimates Q4 web sales will reach $89.08 billion, up 14.7% from $77.66 billion a year earlier. This relentless sales growth continues to take a toll on traditional retailer as the social media phenomenon continues to spur sales growth in categories previously unanticipated.
GCE continues to diversify its digital presence and growth into sustainable Smart Energy and Smart Home markets through its EcoApp programs, focusing on what it considers as neglected markets. "With the advent of Billion-dollar Sustainable Brands, the Billion-dollar Purpose-led Brand Club fueled disruptive innovation that uses sustainability to spur the development of radically better products and services" according to Freya Williams of S.B Sustainable Brands.
"Over the last several months, since GCE announced the acquisitions of its new User Driven digital brand strategies, GCE's stated position that the LED market is rigged for obsolescence has been qualified by highly regarded publications. GCE stands by its claims that the LED lighting industry is focused on reducing the longevity of LED lighting rather than extending it by using technologies that are abundantly available. There have been substantive valuations placed on firms challenging the status quo with programs such as GCE's Lifetime Replacement program," remarks Earl Azimov GCE CEO. "GCE's model of delivering more for less, driven by User Driven markets is seen as forcing the old guard's hand as everything from hotels rooms to taxis, crowd funding and razor blade distribution models are being rewritten. GCE has its brands, distribution and logistics in place to launch its new disruptive digital platforms within 90 days to conquer what it considers to be less for more, rigged markets".
"A higher purpose that ignites the company; mainstream appeal with positioning and packaging stripped of the crunchy clichés that alienate the average customer; and establishing a new 'behavioral contract' with consumers and other stakeholders," according to Freya Williams. This is exactly what GCE is unveiling and as E-Commerce in the US closes in on the $500 billion mark.
