thredUp Finishes Emission Assessment

thredUP, an online resale platform for women's and kids' apparel, shoes, and accessories, completed a 2020-2021 GHG inventory assessment (including Scope 1-3 emissions) to inform thredUP's biggest areas of impact.

The company also displaced 1.3 billion pounds of carbon emissions to date by making it easy to buy and sell secondhand items in its marketplace and decreased U.S.-based shipping emissions by 54% in 2021.

Details were given in the company's inaugural Impact Report.

"Since our founding in 2009, thredUP's purpose has remained rooted in circularity. While thrifting is inherently sustainable, we recognize the importance of ensuring that all aspects of our business are ethical and sustainable," said James Reinhart, CEO of thredUP, in a statement. "The release of our first Impact Report is meant to provide a transparent look at the impact we've made and where we're focusing moving forward as we continue to inspire a new generation of consumers to think secondhand first."
