Social responsibility is a top priority for us

We support people in difficult situations locally and worldwide

DPD Volunteer Days
DPD regularly organises Volunteer Days to support local projects. Whether it's helping out at the local animal shelter and social department stores or collecting rubbish - since 2010 more than 650 volunteers at the Aschaffenburg site have lent a helping hand on around 70 Volunteer Days.

Charity run
DPD employees run for a good cause. Our employees regularly sweat for charity in both local and nationwide charity runs, such as the 2020 Sports Aid virtual run.

DPD trainees have had the opportunity to take on direct social responsibility by sponsoring children since 2017. Currently, trainees are in contact with more than 40 sponsored children from Plan International worldwide, writing letters and receiving reports several times a year.
