Recommerce: Fueling Economic Opportunity and Sustainability
As the circular economy flourishes, our President and CEO Jamie Iannone speaks to eBay’s place as a pioneer in this movement — and how our community continues to help recommerce thrive.
We strive to empower people and create economic opportunity for all. It’s the guiding force behind everything we do.

We have a set of 2020 and 2025 corporate responsibility goals that are measured and reported on annually.
Our marketplace is home to one of the most powerful giving platforms in commerce today. Every day, our community turns to eBay for Charity to support their favorite causes through buying or selling on our platform. A single purchase on eBay for Charity can have a positive ripple effect on charities, their beneficiaries and their local communities.
Populations of traditionally underrepresented entrepreneurs can flourish on eBay. We continue to nurture their business growth through our eBay Foundation. The foundation applies its resources and engages employees to invest in and partner with organizations like Kiva that support underrepresented small business owners to ultimately build stronger, more inclusive communities.
Small businesses are crucial to vibrant economies and core to our purpose. To enable their success, we’ve developed numerous programs aimed to help them compete globally and thrive in the digital economy. Through Retail Revival, and its international adaptation, Export Revival, we seek to level the playing field for local entrepreneurs by providing them with the lessons, tools and support they need to take full advantage of our global marketplace.
In 2019, we received several awards recognizing our culture, workplace and responsible business work.
