Yelp is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2031 through an operational reduction plan. This plan currently consists of carbon reduction initiatives through supplier engagement, clean power investments, clean travel, employee education, green investing and product enhancements; however, we expect this plan to evolve over time. While we anticipate investing in high-quality carbon removal programs to help achieve our goal, we have not purchased any carbon offsets to date.
We track our progress toward our net zero goal by comparing our annual emissions against our emissions in 2021, which we use as our baseline year. We currently rely on a third party to measure our emissions; such measurements are not separately verified. For more information about our carbon footprint and carbon reduction initiatives, please refer to our most recent ESG Report.
