Berlin, April 5, 2023 –AUTO1 Group, Europe's leading digital automotive platform for buying and selling used cars, published its second ESG report today, showing significant progress in areas such as transparency, governance and the launch of the AUTO1 Group communities.
In 2022, the company reiterated its commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2030. The importance of ESG at AUTO1 Group is underlined by its best-in-class governance structure, which includes a dedicated ESG Committee in the Supervisory Board, which is a voluntary committee that exceeds the requirements of the German corporate governance code. In addition, the governance structure is made up of the Management Board and the ESG Steering Committee on an operational level.
Markus Boser, CFO of AUTO1 Group and Management Board representative for sustainability, ESG Ambassador and Chairman of the ESG Steering Committee : “We continue to play a crucial role in enhancing transparency in the historically opaque used car market. What is more, we are helping the market transition towards a greener and more consumer-friendly future. In our second ESG Report we show that we have made strong progress on several ESG-initiatives, while in some areas we are still at the very beginning of this journey. This year we will continue to generate value for our customers while staying on track with making progress with our ESG-initiatives, such as our commitment to having 25% women on the Management Board and 25% female leaders in the two management levels below the Management Board by 2026. We could not be more excited about what’s ahead of us.”
As a result of substantial improvements in 2022 in all three ESG areas, MSCI upgraded AUTO1 Group’s ESG rating in October 2022 from BBB to AA.
