Environmental: Over the past two years, we’ve established a system to measure and reduce our ecological impact, including engaging our marketplace and suppliers and sharing openly with our peers. In 2014 we created the Etsy Sustainability Commission (ESC), in an effort to further accelerate and broaden the scope of our sustainability work. From engineering and marketing to technical operations and facilities, the group includes more than 9% of all Etsy employees. The ESC is dedicated to developing a comprehensive sustainability strategy for our company, including setting specific targets and timelines. As the work of the ESC progresses, we will make these targets and related strategies public. The ESC contextualizes our work in these categories: Carbon Neutral, Zero Waste, Mindful Materials, and Sustainable Work. This ambitious scope highlights our desire to grow and scale our impact by expanding the areas we measure and take action on in the future. In the coming year we will be sharing specific goals in these areas, so stay tuned".
