Responsibility

Our environment

We invest in our office environments and are committed to maintaining safe and environmentally friendly workplaces

Our offices

As a digital business, based between our offices in Manchester, London and Dublin, we believe our environmental footprint is small. We actively encourage our employees to consider their environmental impact. We operate recycling systems in the offices, established with local authorities and recycling schemes, and we have no waste bins by desks which encourages recycling.

Our UK offices are both graded highly by the BREEAM standard; Kings Cross in London achieved an ‘Outstanding’ rating and our Manchester office an ‘Excellent’ one. We have a number of video conferencing rooms, which facilitates cross-office collaboration as well as reducing the need for employees to travel between offices as frequently. 

We continue to use Fruitful Office to deliver fruit to our offices each week. Fruitful Office plants one tree in Malawi for every basket of fruit we receive. Last year, 1,966 trees were planted on behalf of Auto Trader, helping the organisation to mitigate the effects of global warming, deforestation and providing an income to local communities.

Health and safety

We are committed to maintaining a safe workplace for our employees, customers and visitors and anyone affected by our business’s activities. It is therefore our policy that all of the Group’s facilities, products and services comply with applicable laws and regulations governing safety and quality.

During the last year, there were no major injuries reported under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations.

Greenhouse gas emissions

Auto Trader is required to measure and report its direct and indirect greenhouse gas (‘GHG’) emissions by the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic Report and Directors’ Report) Regulations 2013.
