The report marks Zillow Group's initial step in reporting on its sustainability initiatives across four categories: People, Communities, Platform and Footprint. The report details recent progress on a number of key initiatives, including that in 2018:
"Fostering sustainable and responsible business practices is a critical tenet in building a long-term, forward-thinking company," said Zillow Group Chief Corporate Relations Officer Dawn Lyon. "At Zillow Group, we care deeply about how we support our employees, impact our communities, develop our products, and operate in the world. Our inaugural Sustainability Report sets a strong foundation for transparently sharing our business policies, progress, and core values, and we look forward to sharing our progress in these important areas as we evolve our company to help more people by delivering seamless real estate transactions."
Zillow was founded with a mission to bring transparency to real estate at a level that was never before available to consumers. That continued commitment to transparency steers Zillow Group's decisions as it transitions from an online marketplace for facilitating connections between consumers and real estate agents to driving the real estate transaction itself. As Zillow expands its home-buying and selling program, Zillow Offers, it will carefully monitor and manage the impact on the environment and communities in which it operates. Zillow Offers is growing rapidly, with plans to be in 26 markets by mid-year 2020.
