ESG Overview

Our Impact Goals, Strategy & Progress

We have developed an Impact strategy and goals that reflect the positive impact we want to have on the world while advancing and complementing our business strategy, and we are pleased to provide this update on our progress.

A Message From Our CEO

Our Approach to Impact Reporting

Since announcing our Impact strategy in 2017, we have continued to evolve and update many of our goals to be more specific, measurable, and time bound, all while continuing to expand the transparency of our reporting on these activities. We apply the same focus, discipline, and accountability to our Impact metrics as we do our financial metrics, and together, they make us stronger and more resilient. We expect to continue to use our required filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), as well as our Investor Relations website and Etsy News blog, as our primary communications channels for information relating to our Impact strategy and progress.

Our “House of Brands”

We expect to continue to evolve our Impact strategy and disclosures in the future as we grow and incorporate our recently acquired marketplaces into our environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) strategy and as our Impact work matures. Except where specifically noted, our discussion of Impact and Impact data includes the operations of our Reverb marketplace but does not include the operations of Depop or Elo7, which were acquired in 2021. It is our intention to further integrate our new subsidiary brands in our ESG reporting in the future.

Transition to “ESG” Nomenclature

Etsy has transitioned our Impact reporting to the more commonly used environmental, social, and governance nomenclature. We believe this change has provided us with an opportunity to take a fresh look at our focus areas, will make it easier for our various stakeholders to track and interpret our progress, and better align our reporting with emerging global standards.

Keep Commerce Human

We are committed to growing sustainably by aligning our mission and business strategy to help create economic impact through entrepreneurship.

Environmental Impact

Building resilience for the long term

  • Net Zero: Achieving Net Zero through near- and long-term Science-Based Targets while continuing to run a carbon neutral company.
  • Sustainable Operations: Sourcing 100% renewable electricity, reducing the intensity of our energy use, and running “zero waste” operations.
  • Responsible Shopping: Addressing the impacts of our marketplaces and establishing them as destinations for conscious consumers.

Social Impact

Ensuring equitable access to opportunity

  • Prioritizing People: Enabling our team to thrive through thoughtful practices that optimally attract, promote, and retain our talent.
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Aiming for diverse representation, creating an inclusive culture and centering equity in our workplace, with our suppliers, and in our marketplaces.
  • Social Innovation: Providing pathways to economic freedom by using our platforms to support communities and invest in programs that promote beneficial economic and creative opportunities.


Fostering a culture of ethics & accountability

  • Responsible Marketplace Practices: Engendering trust with responsible structures and safeguards that reflect how deeply we care about our communities and marketplaces.
  • Thoughtful Corporate Governance: Crafting thoughtful corporate governance practices to guide our business.
  • Integrated ESG Reporting: Driving accountability through robust ESG reporting.
  • Risk Oversight & Management: Building for the future through robust risk assessment and oversight to unlock innovation and drive long-term value creation.

How We Drive Impact

Marketplace Integration

We are working to integrate our impact ambitions into how our marketplace platforms are designed and operated, and how our sellers and buyers experience our marketplaces. By making it easier for sellers and buyers to understand their personal and collective impact, we aim to influence more sustainable practices on the seller side while helping buyers make more informed decisions. We are building product features to enhance inclusivity and accessibility, and we are conscious about using marketing data and marketing images in responsible and ethical ways.

Business Integration

Responsibility and accountability for implementing our Impact strategy is integrated and owned across our company through many cross functional teams. Our Impact strategy is approved annually by our Executive Team, and each of our Impact goals has an Executive sponsor. Our Board of Directors also has oversight of these activities.

Philanthropy. In 2021, we invested over $2.9 million in philanthropic donations, including for COVID-19 relief, to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (“AAPI”) led organizations, and to organizations driving access to opportunity in STEM education and the technology industry.

Contributing to our Communities. Contributing to our Communities. Collectively, Etsy enabled employees to donate 2,490 hours of paid volunteer time off in their communities through Etsy’s Impact Hours program.

Purchasing Power. We aim to drive positive impact in our supply chain by investing in strong relationships with our suppliers. We engage on priority impact areas, such as supplier diversity, greenhouse gas emissions, fair wages, and employee benefits programs, at crucial touch points throughout the supplier lifecycle. We conduct regular reviews, audits, and conversations to confirm suppliers are upholding agreed upon practices and to identify further areas where we can engage with suppliers. We have a Supplier Code of Conduct designed to ensure that our suppliers are committed to our standards.

Values-Aligned Resource Allocation

We’re putting our resources behind positive change to enable the communities we are a part of to thrive. Scroll right for more examples.

Public Policy - Advocating for creative entrepreneurs and the planet

We aim to leverage our engagement with policy makers to advance our commitments to economic empowerment for creative entrepreneurs, equity, and ecological sustainability. A key aspect of this work is activating the power of our seller community. During 2021, over 35,000 Etsy sellers advocated on these issues in the United States, United Kingdom, and the European Union and generated over 50,000 messages to lawmakers on behalf of our community.

In 2021, we continued to advocate for public policies aligned with the needs of creative entrepreneurs including COVID-19 relief for the self-employed and sole proprietors; portable benefits, support for the U.S. Postal Service, sensible platform regulation and economic justice policies to support micro-businesses operated by women, indigenous community members, and people of color. We also took the following actions in support of policy solutions to help drive carbon reduction in the long term, including advocating for national and regional policies with the potential to accelerate the decarbonization of the transportation sector and drive significant market transformation, supporting national goal-setting efforts that stand to expand electrification infrastructure and increase environmental justice, and continuing to collaborate with peers, vendors, and non-government organizations on industry-wide efforts to drive efficiency and resilience in the shipping and logistics sector.
