At Adevinta, we believe everything and everyone has a purpose in life. Our selection of digital brands unlock the full value in every person, place and thing by creating perfect matches on the world’s most trusted marketplaces.
Sustainability is in our DNA, and we are recognised as a global sustainability leader by DJSI Europe. By providing marketplaces where people buy and sell second-hand goods, we contribute to the circular economy and help people live more sustainably.
At Adevinta we'll stay ahead of the curve by using innovation, curiosity and technology to develop products that help everyone and everything find new purpose.
We're all about matchmaking, and we take the same approach to hiring. But it's not just about finding the right skills for the job. It's also about making sure the role and the culture are the right match too.
We care about gaining and keeping the trust of our users, customers and stakeholders by acting responsibly, promoting sustainability and protecting the environment.
We invest in companies with tangible traction, a potential to scale beyond their domestic market, and who we can support with more than just financial resource.

Fuelling the circular economy

Every time someone chooses to buy a used item instead of something new – maybe a mobile phone, pair of jeans or piece of furniture – they’re not only saving money, they’re also making a more sustainable choice.
Trading in used items reduces the need for newly-produced goods, which saves greenhouse gas emissions and creates fewer wasted materials. A single sofa might not seem like much, but when you multiply these environmental savings across the dozens of digital marketplaces Adevinta operates, the result is remarkable. We call it the Second Hand Effect. Discover more in our report.
Discover what the Second Hand Effect is and see the positive impact it has on the planet.
In 2020, our users saved a potential 20.7 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions through the second hand effect. See what this looks like across the world.
