Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) at Auto Trader is driven by our values and culture and is focused on making a difference to our employees, our industry and our communities
Our culture is shaped by our values of being determined, reliable, curious, courageous, humble and community-minded. This, along with our diversity and inclusion strategy, is embedded into how we operate on a daily basis
Our ESG activity encompasses employee volunteering, fundraising and charitable giving, environmental impact, sustainability and helping our customers win in today’s automotive marketplace.
As a company, we are keen to give back to the local communities in which we operate, as well as supporting charities and causes that are close to our employees’ hearts. We continue to focus our community support in four areas: match funding our employees’ individual charitable fundraising efforts, promoting the two volunteering days that are available to all employees each year, Give as You Earn, which is one of our Incredible Benefits, and through the Auto Trader Community Funds which supports grassroots projects in Greater Manchester and Greater London.
We constantly look at ways we can make a positive contribution to our industry; whether that’s developing the next generation of talent, sharing best practice advice with our retailer customers through masterclasses and larger-scale industry events, or helping the industry as a whole to operate in a more transparent, progressive and diverse manner.
