Our approach

Making a positive difference

At Inchcape we take our Corporate Responsibility (CR) very seriously; acting responsibly towards the communities and environments in which we work and towards individuals and society in general. Throughout our history we have believed that our business is about more than just the bottom line.

We are now evolving our CR strategy and aligning it with our strategic objectives, focusing on where we can make the most positive impact for our stakeholders and society. This will build on the progress we made in 2017 across the five CR metrics through which we monitor our activity: developing our People; improving Customer experiences; working with innovative OEM Partners; supporting local Communities; and managing our impact on the Environment.

CR at Inchcape is governed by the CR Committee which meets twice annually, and is supported by a Group operational team and a network of CR champions across our portfolio of 31 markets. The CR Committee is chaired by Till Vestring, Non-Executive Director, and its members are Inchcape’s Chairman, Ken Hanna, Non-Executive Director Coline McConville, Group CEO Stefan Bomhard and Chief Human Resources Officer, Alison Clarke.

Maintaining a robust and transparent approach to CR is important for the long-term sustainability of our business, and we take our responsibilities towards all our stakeholders and the world at large seriously.
