DPD has a long history in the fight against climate change. Since 2006 has taken measures to protect the environment and since 2012 100% of the parcels have been carbon-neutral, without additional costs for customers. In the past five years, DPD has reduced CO2-emissions per package by 14 percent across Europe (2019 vs. 2013). By 2025, DPD even plans to reduce CO2-emissions per package by 30 percent compared to 2013. This is how we become the most sustainable company in the CEP industry.

We have been making carbon-neutral deliveries since 2012.

Sustainability at DPD Germany

We all live on the same planet. That is why we are all, without exception, responsible for the way we treat this sensitive living space, our environment and our limited resources.

Sustainability is becoming more important than ever. This means mastering the challenges of the present without endangering the future. This requires a great deal of courage and a clear vision. At DPD we take this particular social responsibility very seriously. Our aim is to reduce our CO2 emissions by 30% by the year 2025.

DPD Group has been investing in climate protection projects worldwide since 2012, making it the first service provider in Germany to guarantee completely carbon-neutral shipping for all parcels. At no additional cost to the customer.

However, the world is constantly changing - and so is the logistics and parcel market. The predicted sharp increase in parcel volumes requires consistent rethinking and new concepts. We aim to continue to shape this change actively and decisively in future. In order to make our contribution to a high quality of life for all people, we examine every single aspect of our operations. Sustainable development is accordingly firmly anchored in our corporate culture.
