Because we all share the same address

Operating in the delivery sector gives us a special insight into how we are all
connected and depend on each other. As such, each of our Business Units
understand that it’s part of a larger local community. That’s why we actively look for
opportunities to assist charitable initiatives and programmes that enhance people’s
lives, particularly the most vulnerable and those in need. Last year alone, we
supported over 30,000 employees who participated in community initiatives.

It pays to collaborate with like-minded individuals and organisations

Across Europe and elsewhere, we collaborate with a wide range of organisations including city authorities, high schools and universities. These alliances are sparking meaningful changes and identifying better ways to overcome today’s biggest challenges, particularly in the area of sustainability. From our partnership with FEBA (the European Food Banks Federation) to empowering start-ups in Switzerland, to supporting innovation at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in the UK, these collaborations have a positive impact on communities everywhere.

PortAventura World joins Fundación SEUR’s programme to help sick children

Just one of Fundación SEUR’s many goodwill initiatives

‘Caps for a New Life’ is a fundraising programme that helps children with rare medical conditions by financing treatments through funds raised by recycling plastic bottle caps. Since its launch, this project has managed to help 180 children in Spain thanks to the collection of 7,179 tn of recycled plastic caps worth more than €1,200,000. As well as benefiting the children, recycling the bottle caps has the added benefit of avoiding the  CO2 emissions associated with creating new ones.

Leading by example

Guide dogs transform the lives of visually impaired people by offering practical assistance and real companionship. Each year, DPD Slovakia sponsors the training of a guide dog by the Únia Nevidiacich a Slabozrakých Slovenska (Union of the Blind and Visually Impaired of Slovakia). We are proud to see our logo on the dog’s harness each year and hope it inspires other businesses to do the same.
