Behind the Creative Curtain: How Etsy is Leading E-Commerce on Climate Change

Date: 01/30/2020

Time: 6:00pm
Where: LMHQ, 150 Broadway, 20th Floor, New York NY
Fee: $15

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 industry.
 
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.
 
Speakers include:
  • Chelsea Mozen, Director of Sustainability, Etsy
  • Lindsay Vellines, Integrated Marketing Manager, Etsy
 
This event is presented in collaboration with the Bard MBA in Sustainability Program. The Bard MBA in Sustainability is a hybrid MBA program that fully embeds sustainability into a core business curriculum. It meets once-monthly over a four day weekend at LMHQ with online classes in between. Information at bard.edu/mba.
 
Doors open at 6; program begins at 6:30pm. Refreshments will be served.
