Responsibility

At Auto Trader, we are committed to being a responsible business. Our purpose sits beneath an overarching goal of Driving change together. Responsibly. Environmental, Social and Governance (‘ESG') at Auto Trader is driven by our values and culture. We aim to make a difference to our people, our communities, our industries as well as the wider environment, whilst ensuring we act at all times as a responsible business.

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.

With the changing environment over the past year, we have reviewed our purpose, our strategy and our focus areas. As part of this review we have looked to ensure our new make a difference strategy is aligned and embedded within our overall Group strategy. During the year we have sought input from stakeholders and this new make a difference strategy has been reviewed and approved by the Board.

Our make a difference strategy falls within three distinct pillars, all of which sit under our purpose of 'Driving change together. Responsibly.'


To ensure we continue to evolve our make a difference strategy and make progress towards our goals, this year we established a new 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.

We are pleased to have been recognised as a FTSE4Good company. Created by the global index provider FTSE Russell, the FTSE4Good Index Series is designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) practices.
