Positively contributing to the communities in which we operate

1. Safe mobility

At Inchcape, we aim to be a strong and visible advocate for promoting safer roads and reducing accidents and associated deaths across all markets in which we operate. As an automotive distributor, we have a responsibility to maximise road safety and support responsible and safe driving. In 2023, we implemented 21 safe mobility initiatives across all of our regions, collaborating with our brand partners and collectively influencing thousands of lives within our communities.

2. Inclusive mobility

Our commitment to inclusive mobility focuses on mobility solutions for those with disabilities. We can play a significant role in improving their lives by developing and designing solutions to make sure we offer products and solutions for all members of our community, regardless of their ability. As part of our approach to more inclusive mobility we are:

  • Sponsoring and promoting local initiatives to support people with disabilities to access the right mobility solutions
  • Supporting key programmes to promote the ongoing health and skills of those with disabilities when it comes to mobility solutions
  • Ensuring that all Inchcape facilities and operations provide full and inclusive access to mobility for those with disabilities

3. Social mobility

Driving global and local programmes that provide access to equal opportunities for underserved communities, including internships, apprenticeships, and technical education.

In 2023, we undertook more than 20 initiatives globally to promote Social Mobility. These included fostering partnerships with educational institutions and collaborating with local industries to uplift underprivileged and underrepresented groups. Our social mobility projects reached over 40,000 people in 2023, focusing on:

  • Social inclusivity and promoting upward mobility
  • Deepening our connection and engagement with the communities we serve
  • Focusing on global strategy with local impact by partnering with local NGOs

Highlights & achievements

  • 88 initiatives across our three areas in 2023, engaging over 6,500 colleagues
  • More than 40,000 members of our communities positively impacted by over 20 Social Mobility initiatives
  • Advocating and acting for the safe use of roads, with 21 Safe Mobility initiatives in 2023 across our regions

We ensure positive community impact through education, skills, and social investment. Engaging communities in mobility transition is vital in supporting our Accelerate Strategy.
