Sustainability at Mercari
Mercari’s 5 Initiatives
As part of our efforts to ensure sustainable business growth, we have identified five main areas of focus.
Our first three initiatives aim to create value for both the economy and society by offering solutions to social and environmental issues.
We will work toward creating a circular economy, forming a positive mindset through culture and education, and empowering local regions.
We also believe that safe, secure, and fair transactions and sound compliance and risk management are indispensable to creating value sustainably, and have incorporated both within our initiatives. In addition, we will work toward strengthening governance as a foundation to support all of our business activities.

How We Set Our Initiatives
Mercari’s initiatives represent the key challenges we aim to solve through our main business activities. In setting our initiatives, we refer to guidelines such as the SDG Compass and GRI Standards and carry out evaluations both internally and by our stakeholders.
Promoting and Implementing ESG
As of 2019, Mercari has launched a project team to promote ESG, led by the executive office. The team works with various project and department representatives to set strategies for sustainable operations, collaborates with related divisions, works to gather data, and spreads awareness within the company.
