Our Foundation for the Future

Welcome to our inaugural Corporate Responsibility Overview. We look forward to sharing our progress with you – giving an account of where we have been, where we are currently, and where we’re heading.

Corporate Responsibility

Through our Corporate Responsibility program, we’re addressing how our company impacts both the planet and society. Our three pillars – Our Communities, Our Workplace, and Our Planet – bring our purpose to life and provide a framework for meaningful, long-lasting impact.

Our Communities

Supporting Housing and a Sense of Home for All

Our work within our communities is founded on our belief that all people deserve the comfortable, safe, and secure feeling of home. We focus our efforts on the communities where we live and work because that’s where we have the greatest opportunity to effect change.

Our Workplace

Building a More Inclusive Wayfair

We provide learning opportunities for all career stages and strive to support each employee in a meaningful way by providing a full range of benefits. And we’re committed to embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion into every aspect of our organization — so that each person feels empowered to bring their whole self to work every day, to the degree that they choose.

Our Planet

Protecting Our Shared Home

We’re taking a value chain approach to addressing our environmental footprint — starting with our own operations and working with suppliers, partners, and customers to reduce our upstream and downstream impacts.

"We strive to be more than just a home goods provider. Purpose drives our business. We are at the beginning of our journey, but we’re driven by our desire to continuously improve, and we’re invested in setting ourselves up for the long haul. This is critical as we aim to be the best neighbor, employer, and provider of products to our customers."

- Derek Oliver (he/him) | Head of Government Affairs and Corporate Responsibility

At Wayfair, our mission is to help anyone, anywhere create their feeling of home. Whether that is those who have been forced from their home or those who have lost their home, our goal is to support housing and a sense of home for all. Our mission particularly rings true as it relates to the devastating crisis in Ukraine that has been on the minds of many Wayfairians and their communities over the last several months.

There is no ignoring the fact that 2021 proved to yet again be a year full of challenges and uncertainty for us all, including for the communities where we live, work, and play who continue to feel the many impacts of this global disruption. This is no different for the neighborhood around our own Boston headquarters – affectionately known as our “Wayborhood’ – which has felt the absence of business from office workers, many of whom have been working remotely throughout the pandemic.
