Fuelling the Circular Economy

It’s clear that we are consuming too much, too quickly. We need to change the way we consume, shifting to a more circular economy.
Circular consumption means keeping products and materials in use for longer through repair, reuse and recycling. It’s kinder to the planet than linear consumption, where people buy something new, use it briefly, and then dispose of it.

As a leader in the second-hand marketplace sector, we are uniquely positioned to accelerate the growth of the circular economy – yet there is still much work ahead. We are committed to delivering the continuous effort and innovation required.

Environmental responsibility

By fuelling the circular economy, we contribute to slowing down resource overconsumption and reducing pollution, waste, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Our approach, in line with the principles of the UN Global Compact, emphasises environmental responsibility, the use of green technologies, and a precautionary stance on potential risks.

Empowering sustainable commerce

Sustainable consumption is at the core of Adevinta’s business model. As a leading online marketplace group operating in 10 countries, we know we have an important role to play in society. Our trusted brands not only empower local economies, but also help countless local businesses to thrive.

Adevinta’s Double Materiality Assessment

A sustainability topic that is significant from either or both perspectives needs to be reported on under CSRD. To understand which of these topics are significant for Adevinta, we conducted several interviews, and workshops and reviewed many internal processes and documentation.

With the DMA finalised, we now have a foundation for the topics that need to be addressed and reported on first. You can see our main topics in the graphic below.

Additionally, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at sustainability@adevinta.com.

This is just one more step towards compliance with the CSRD and the work we at Adevinta want to do for greater transparency and accountability in sustainability.

The Second-Hand Effect

Each day, millions of people buy and sell second-hand items on our marketplaces. By reducing the need to buy newly produced goods, we are promoting more sustainable consumption. We want to encourage people to make second-hand their first choice. We call this the Second-Hand Effect. View our Second-Hand Effect Report 2022 here.
