Industry, commerce, and traffic emit PM 2.5 fine particle air pollution that is damaging to our populations’ health. Largely, it’s an invisible danger. As we go about our daily lives, we have no way of knowing the potential threats in the air around us. Without insight and real data it’s impossible to change things for the better. This is where DPDgroup can help.

As a parcel delivery network, we recognise that our industry is part of the problem. That’s what has spurred us to become part of the solution. DPDgroup’s Air Quality Monitoring Programme will provide you with a wealth of air quality data allowing you to build on your knowledge of existing pollution hotspots to identify the root causes. This data can help empower policy changes for the benefit of all your citizens.

Lisbon, Portugal - A proven success story

  • 73 sensors on our vehicle fleet

  • 19 sensors at our Pickup points

  • Design of a new low emission zone in the heart of the city.

  • The PM 2.5 pollution hotpots identified enabled objective decision-making to improve air quality in Lisbon for all its citizens.

This initiative is really useful for our city. It is a decisive project since it enables us to obtain additional key data and to identify green areas and hot spots in the city. Thanks to our successful collaboration with DPDgroup, we are able to improve air quality in the city, and thus have a positive impact on our citizens' health.
