When thinking about the future, sustainable commerce is important. A major leader toward this effort is eBay as they have reduced their emissions by 44% last year. Much of this can be attributed to an increased use of renewable energy as well as fewer people working at their physical offices. In addition, eBay was able to decrease its water usage by 29% in 2020, the equivalent of 104 Olympic-sized pools.

eBay has referred to a key differentiator in sustainability as recommerce: the buying and selling of second hand consumer electronics and apparel. In 2020 alone, sales of these second hand goods allowed eBay to conserve 720,000 metric tons of emissions. By the year 2025, they plan to be able to prevent an additional 3 million metric tons of emissions.
