I just wanted to update you all with some exciting news! Last week, Etsy’s CEO Josh Silverman announced that Etsy is committing to a set of goals designed to increase Etsy’s positive impact on the world. The goals he announced are spread over three areas of positive impact: economic, social, and ecological.
Demand number five in our petition is that Etsy’s board and senior leadership “recommit to Etsy’s work towards building a sustainable future.” We believe that Etsy’s public impact goals (and other internal communications to employees) represent a sincere commitment from senior management, and therefore satisfy demand number five.
This is the result of the hard work of Etsy’s values and impact team, as well as the petition and all of the signatures behind it. Your voices helped make Etsy’s impact goals a priority for management. Thank you!
