Responsibility

Our purpose is to Drive change together. Responsibly. We are committed to being a responsible business and our purpose is driven by our resolve to do the right thing, measure and report transparently, and always act ethically and with integrity. As the UK and Ireland’s largest automotive marketplace, we have a responsibility to create a more accessible, equitable and sustainable future.

We recognise that being a sustainable business for the long term is about ensuring we have the foundations we need for success as well as the ability to evolve to meet future challenges.

Our trusted brand has been built over more than 40 years and we remain committed to being the best place to find, buy and sell vehicles in the UK on a platform that enables data-driven digital retailing for our customers. This involves changing how the UK shops for vehicles by providing the best online buying experience and supporting all our retailers with this online transition.

With this goal in mind, our ESG initiatives comprising our make a difference strategy focus on the material issues that have the greatest impact on our business whilst considering the expectations of our stakeholders. We can play a positive role in making a difference to our people, our communities, the industries we are part of and the environment.

Our make a difference strategy comprises three distinct pillars, all of which sit under our purpose to Drive change together. Responsibly.


We continue to evolve our ESG reporting to meet the requirements of leading industry frameworks and our stakeholders’ expectations. Our reporting focuses on the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (‘TCFD’) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (‘SASB’) standards referencing SASB’s reporting framework for the Internet and Media Services and Media & Entertainment industries. We have also identified the UN Sustainable Development Goals (‘SDGs’), which we believe Auto Trader can make a meaningful contribution to.

To further ensure this continued evolution in our make a difference strategy, we also have an established Corporate Responsibility Committee. The Committee gives Board level oversight working in alignment with our guilds and networks to oversee our progress in fulfilling our goals to make a difference.
