Carbon neutral commitment
Our commitment is to make every parcel we deliver carbon neutral, for all our customers, at no extra cost for them. We do that by measuring our CO2 emissions, by striving to reduce them, and by offsetting the remaining emissions. DPDgroup targets a reduction of road transport CO2 emissions of 10% per parcel by 2020, compared to the levels of 2013.
How we do it:
- By improving the efficiency of our transport network, by tour optimisation for example
- By the deployment of innovative solutions, like Predict or Pickup,
- By an increased use of alternative fuel vehicles
To offset our remaining transport emissions, we finance renewable and cleaner energy production projects by purchasing carbon credits. Together with EcoAct, the European leader on the carbon market, we have put in place an offsetting program respecting the most rigorous international standards.
