Achieving Our 2020 Goals

Building off of our key themes, we set a series of impact goals in 2016 that are measured and reported on every year.

Economic Empowerment

Achieve a higher percentage of growth among eBay sellers in less-advantaged communities as compared with average economic growth nationwide by 2020.

eBay for Charity

Enable $1 billion in charity funds raised by 2020.

eBay Foundation

Lend $1 million to entrepreneurs via Kiva by 2020. Enable 50,000 entrepreneurs through access to capital and mentoring, and thereby impact the lives of 250,000 people globally through Kiva, Global Give and grants.

Circular Commerce

Create $2.5 billion in positive economic impacts and avoid 2.5 million metric tons of carbon emissions from 2016 to 2020 through people selling their pre-owned electronics and apparel on eBay.

Looking Ahead: Our 2025 and Beyond Goals

As we achieved our 2020 goals, we’re planning ahead for the future.

Carbon Emissions

We are committed to climate action through the approval of our science-based target and our accelerated carbon neutrality goal, as part of our overall efforts to have a real, measurable impact.

Renewable Energy

Source 100 percent of our electricity supply from renewable energy sources by 2025 for eBay-controlled data centers and offices.

Achieve a higher percentage of growth among eBay sellers in less-advantaged communities as compared with average economic growth nationwide by 2025.

From 2021 to 2025, raise $600 million in total funds to support charities globally.

• Increase the rate of employee participation in eBay Foundation programs year-over-year.

• Increase the number of volunteer hours per employee year-over-year.
