In 2019, Etsy became the first major online shopping destination to offset
100% of carbon emissions from shipping. Now, every time an item is
purchased on Etsy, the company balances out the carbon emissions by
creating positive environmental impact. When Etsy moved to reduce their
carbon footprint, they discovered that 98% of their emissions come from
shipping— a process which they do not control. Despite this challenge, Etsy
developed a low-cost strategy to offset the emissions from every item
shipped through it’s platform - a true revolution in the e-commerce

Join LMHQ and Bard MBA in Sustainability to hear from the Etsy team on how
they arrived at this climate solution and then executed on this endeavor.
