Air quality monitoring programme

Air quality right at your doorstep

Air quality monitoring programme

Across the world, communities are demanding cleaner air. We recognized we were in a unique position to help.

End of 2019, DPD partnered with the cities of Lisbon, Paris and Madrid as a pilot project, and then London and Rotterdam have been deployed in 2020. Using next generation lasers, our delivery fleet and our depots monitored PM 2.5 air pollution levels in real time. The comprehensive data already enabled Lisbon city authorities to design a unique low emission zone in the heart of the city.

Building on the success, DPDgroup plan to expand the initiative in 20 key cities across Europe by 2021. It’s an example of the good that can come from acting local for the benefit of cities and citizens.
