Responsibility for our Community.
We feel we are part of society and make our contribution to the common good.
DPD is an asset to the social environment in which we work successfully. Therefore, we make a large contribution to the well-being of society and support numerous charitable associations and organisations, not only financially, but through voluntary work and the provision of logistics support.
DPD employees are highly committed to numerous social and charitable projects - Cooking in the Gruft (one of the most important shelters for the homeless in Vienna) is a fixed date in the calendar of many DPD volunteers. We prepare an evening meal for people in need several times a year.
However, we support the Gruft in other ways too. In winter, the hardest time of the year for homeless people, we put together a winter parcel filled with toiletries, scarves, gloves and caps.
DPD holds a charity day once a year to support various institutions, such as the Sterntalerhof (children's hospice) in Burgenland in 2016 and the Caritas residential home for people with disabilities in Vienna Neustadt in 2017. Hard-working helpers get stuck in where needed - painting corridors, constructing flowerbeds, repairing fences etc. We provide these institutions with quick and straightforward assistance through our workforce.
The Mirno More peace fleet is the largest sailing project for socially disadvantaged children and young people. The aims of the peace fleet are social integration, peace, tolerance and international understanding. As the sponsor of a ship in the Mirno More fleet, DPD enables many disadvantaged children and young people to spend a carefree week at sea.
