Berlin, 29. April 2022 – AUTO1 Group, Europe’s leading platform for buying and selling used cars online, today issued its first ESG report, demonstrating its commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and providing a clear roadmap towards supporting the European Green Deal. In the report, the company outlines how its technology platform supports transparency in the historically opaque used car industry, while also supporting a sustained reduction of the European mobility sector's environmental footprint. The report further discloses key non-financial metrics following the SASB standard and the EU Taxonomy Regulation. The multi-brand technology company, which offers consumers the most transparent and easy way to buy and sell used cars, aims to take a leadership position when it comes to trading cars in an environmentally friendly way.
Working with its partners, AUTO1 Group aims to reduce emissions across its supply chain, e.g. by continuously optimizing its delivery routes. Moreover, AUTO1 is working towards a more transparent market for electric vehicles, including through its membership in the CARA battery transparency initiative.
Markus Boser, CFO of AUTO1 Group: “The publication of our first ESG report is a milestone for AUTO1 Group, and it underlines our strong commitment to transparency and playing our part in building a greener and more sustainable future for our planet. We are actively working towards reducing the need for new cars and are accelerating the transition towards used electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles by building the best way to buy and sell environmentally friendly cars online. A central part of our sustainability journey is to massively scale our Autohero brand for consumers, designed to offer our customers an ever-growing selection of low emission vehicles.”
