Sustainability without compromise

Sustainability is about meeting the needs of the present without compromising the future. It’s not a quick fix. It needs real vision. At DPDgroup, we have embedded sustainable development into our culture and we’re looking at every aspect of our business to drive long-lasting changes that will bring people a better quality of life.

Because each of you deserves more sustainable city centres, DPDgroup rolled out over than 100 smart urban delivery solutions throughout Europe and beyond in 2019, thus mitigating congestion and pollution in cities and optimizing delivery preferences for the e-shopper.

For the planet, we pursue our market-leading carbon neutral commitment by implementing low carbon technologies on the road and in our facilities, and investing in free energy production projects worldwide.

The whole community demands cleaner air. Through our fleet and depots, we measure air quality levels in real time, street by street, providing a comprehensive picture of cities’ air to city authorities and citizens.

When it comes to climate, we want to do our part.

Conscious of our responsibility towards the planet and its people, we aim at being the most sustainable delivery company in Europe.
