DPD assumes responsibility – towards its shippers and consignees as well as its employees and the society within which we operate. Our groupwide DrivingChangeTM sustainability strategy is focused on those areas which are closely linked to our core operations.

Driving ChangeTM

Carbon-neutral shipping

Essential to us: carbon-neutral parcel shipping without additional costs to shippers and consignees. We closely monitor the greenhouse gases we generate, and work continuously on reducing our carbon footprint. Any unavoidable transport emissions are offset by investment in projects for renewable energies and clean energy generation.

Social responsibility

We established the DPD Foundation in 2016. The Foundation groups together our social involvement and promotion of project work. The focus is on the needs and rights of children, young adults and families. The DPD Foundation implements joint projects with the Plan International children's charity and with the DPD Aid Fund.

Intelligent city logistics

High levels of traffic density and pollution in inner cities require new solutions to parcel delivery operations. We are developing sustainable city logistics concepts in order to ensure deliveries to inner-city areas in future, too.

Innovative entrepreneurial operations

As a company we promote a start-up culture, in which staff have the opportunity to implement their own innovative ideas. This enables us to create new solutions for shippers and consignees on a regular basis, thus securing our position as the digital leaders within the parcels industry.

Carbon neutral and innovative

We conserve the environment and develop new solutions for parcel shipping. In addition, every year we offset more than 912,000 tonnes of CO2, thus ensuring carbon-neutral parcel shipping.

Smart solutions for the inner city

Smart solutions for the inner city

Transport bikes
In Berlin, Nuremberg and many other cities they are already a familiar sight: with transport bikes we ensure locally emissions-free deliveries.

TRIPL
E-scooters - the so-called TRIPL - also reduce traffic impact in city centres and ensure environmentally friendly parcel deliveries.

VW e-Crafter
Electro-mobility - In Hamburg, Berlin and Stuttgart DPD is testing pre-series models of the VW e-Crafter in everyday operations.

Digital services
Digital innovations enable us to reduce the number of unsuccessful delivery attempts, which avoids unnecessary journeys and stopping times.

Digital innovation leadership

From A for Alexa to Z for zero emissions. With our digital solutions we create a great customer experience for our shippers and consignees.

The DPD Foundation

The aim of the DPD Foundation is to help create a world in which children, young adults and their families can live healthy lives and develop their potential. In addition the Foundation supports DPD employees, transport subcontractors and delivery drivers in emergency situations. For this purpose the Foundation promotes social involvement in the form of long-term and targeted project work, with three main areas of focus:

  • With the DPD Aid Fund the Foundation helps staff, transport subcontractors and drivers who find themselves in a sudden emergency through no fault of their own.

  • As a partner to the Plan International children’s charity, the Foundation sponsors children in Third World countries.

  • In addition the DPD Foundation supports charitable projects undertaken by Plan International and other partners.

Outstanding! WE say thank you.

Appreciation of outstanding performance provides the best motivation. This is why we launched our “Outstanding” initiative. Since its launch more than 1,000 of our employees, system partners and delivery drivers have received an award. Among other tokens of appreciation, the selected employees receive a thank you voucher from DPD.
