Initiatives
Plan

We believe that our environment forms the foundation for all human activity.

Electric power, naturally-occurring materials, and the planet’s other resources are essential not only to providing food, shelter, and clothing so that people may lead their lives, but also for Mercari to continue its business.
However, data shows us that humanity is depleting natural resources 1.6 times faster than the ecosystem can regenerate them.*1 Moreover, the collection, production, and usage methods of natural resources are affecting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, leading to the acceleration of global warming and climate change.*2

For these reasons, we aim to revise our practices to an extent that allows us to continue our business while minimizing our environmental impact as much as possible.
We also intend to change people’s consumption behavior to be more sustainable by expanding the Mercari marketplace, which allows disused items to be passed along to the next user, to the entire globe.

We aim to be a Planet-Positive business that can contribute to solving environmental issues and help to share the earth's limited resources among people and every living being on the planet for generations to come.
