A More Sustainable Way to Retail

We use the power of our platforms to inspire a more sustainable way to retail: intentionally inclusive, entrepreneurially driven, responsibly curated and waste-smart.

Every product has a story, a human connection. A dream fulfilled; a bond made. At Qurate Retail Group, we don’t just sell things. We connect dreamers with discoverers; designers and innovators with shoppers looking for unique experiences that enrich life’s everyday moments. We’ve been creating these experiences for decades—online, in stores and on TV—making connections and forging strong relationships with our communities and team members. But with relationships comes responsibility. For us, that responsibility has always meant making sure that these moments of joy also help build a better world.

Now, we’re raising our game even further. Challenges such as inequality, climate change, and community wellbeing require us to do even more through bold goals, fresh thinking, renewed commitment, and collective action – using the inherent strengths of our relationships, our global platforms, and our passionate team members.

We’re building an intentionally inclusive work culture where differences drive innovation. We’re supporting entrepreneurs of all backgrounds so startups become sustainable sources of income and inspiration and build community resilience. We’re conserving energy by recycling, reusing, and shifting our plastic use so that our oceans can thrive again. And we’re purposefully sourcing products that are made ethically and sustainably.

In other words, we see a new path forward. A new way of retailing that creates moments of joy and a better world. Powered by our purpose and principles. Moving us forward.
