We act today
To reduce our environmental impact
We are aware that when our business expands, so does our environmental impact and the challenge to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and find innovative environmental solutions along our entire value chain.
With that in mind, Mercado Libre’s carbon footprint is measured and disclosed on an annual basis, along with the development of mitigation initiatives. Measuring the carbon footprint is a key strategy for a prompt identification and implementation of reduction actions while our business grows. We have also created the Regenera América program to channel investments for the regeneration and conservation of biomes in Latin America. The program aims at fostering the carbon market, local development, and the conservation of native ecosystems.
As a clear sign of Mercado Libre’s long-term commitment to this agenda, in 2021 we launched the first Sustainability Bond of the company for an aggregate initial amount of USD 400 million to provide regular financing to Regenera América and other similar initiatives.
