Our online classifieds marketplaces play a key role in the circular economy, and we focus on operating responsibly and providing a positive impact on the communities where we live and work.”
The Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe is made up of European sustainability leaders that are identified by Standard & Poor (S&P) Global through the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).
