Our mission is to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world.
We are building a human, authentic and community-centric global and local marketplace. We are committed to using the power of business to create a better world through our platform, our members, our employees and the communities we serve.
As we grow, commitment to our mission remains at the core of our identity. It is woven into the decisions we make for the long-term health of our ecosystem, from the sourcing of our office supplies to our employee benefits to the items sold in our marketplace.
Leading with our values
We are a mindful, transparent, and humane business.
We plan and build for the long term.
We value craftsmanship in all we make.
We believe fun should be part of everything we do.
We keep it real, always.
Building an "Etsy Economy"
In an Etsy Economy, creative entrepreneurs can find meaningful work selling their goods in both global and local markets, where thoughtful consumers can discover those goods and build relationships with the people who make and sell them.
An Etsy Economy empowers artists, designers and curators to start and grow businesses on their own terms.
It’s an ecosystem that connects buyers around the world to the communities where Etsy shop owners live, work and create.
By building and supporting this people-powered economy, we hope to inspire global business practices that are sustainable, responsible and profitable. We hope to make the world a little more like Etsy.
Understanding our impact
We believe businesses are obligated to create value for their stakeholders as well as their shareholders and that the power of business should be used to strengthen communities and regenerate our environment. To demonstrate our commitment to these ideals, we monitor and publicly report on our efforts to minimize the harm and maximize the benefit we create for people and the planet.
