Etsy’s Brooklyn headquarters occupies 200,000 sq ft of a nine-story building constructed in 1924. The renovation, by Gensler, was designed to be zero waste within both its construction and its ongoing operations. Etsy formalized its zero waste vision in 2017 by publicly announcing their commitment to run zero waste operations globally by 2020. Since then, the office has also been certified as a Zero Waste Facility at the Platinum level. See Case Study pdf.
