Sustainability without compromise
We see sustainability as an obligation and not just a buzzword: we are extremely conscious of our responsibility towards our planet and our fellow human beings and we actively embrace it.
Every parcel we have delivered since 2012 has been carbon neutral – at no additional cost to our customers. We do this by measuring our CO2 emissions, lowering them consistently and compensating for all remaining CO2 emissions. We are lowering our CO2 emissions continually. One example of how we are doing this is the purchase of our fully electric HGV with which we are able to save 72 tonnes of CO2 per year. Likewise, we are able to cut CO2 emissions every night by switching from road to rail transport. Our work with ImagineCargo is focused on deliveries on bicycles and electric vehicles in urban areas.
In our eyes, taking responsibility also means actively supporting society: we are the main partner of FC Thun for its up-and-coming young players and we support social engagement with the project “Profis on Tour”. Thanks to our partnership with Venturelab and our sponsorship of the Swiss Startup Champions, we are able to actively support Swiss start-ups. As the exclusive partner of Switzerland’s leading children’s charity Terre des hommes, we have been in charge of all logistical services since 2012 and supply the Swiss companies at the annual orange sale. DPD employees even volunteer to help out at the street market.
We roll up our sleeves and work for our environment and our society.
