Become the reference in sustainable delivery

Boris Winkelmann

Sustainability is the biggest challenge of our times. At DPDgroup, we are pioneering a truly sustainable business. It’s what drives us every dayWe aim to be a force for good in the world, joining forces with customers, consumers, suppliers and other stakeholders to make a positive difference to people, to our planet and to the communities we operate with.

DPDgroup is also at the forefront of the e-commerce revolution, touching the lives of millions of people every day – that’s another reason why we’re striving to be the most sustainable delivery company. Because wherever we live on Earth, we all share the same address.”

Boris Winkelmann, Chairman & CEO of GeoPost / DPDgroup

We all share the #SameAddress

In 2020, we delivered 1.9bn parcels worldwide. But when it comes to protecting future generations and our cherished planet, we all share the same address. That’s why we’ve reduced our CO2 emissions per parcel by 18.8% since 2013 and we’ll reach 30% by 2025, when our delivery vehicles in Europe’s 225 largest cities will be 100% low- emission. 

Inspired and guided by the three pillars of our Sustainability approach – PeoplePlanet and Communities – DPDgroup is working harder than ever to create a social and environmental legacy that our children can be proud of.
