DPDgroup maintains the EcoVadis certificate with a gold level

Ljubljana, February 2022 | As every year, last year in the survey of the international platform EcoVadis we achieved a stable result of 68/100, which allows us to maintain the certificate with a gold level, which places us in the top 6 % of companies EcoVadis evaluates in our industry.

 In 2021, DPDgroup made a special effort to achieve goals and results in the field of work, human rights, sustainability, and ethics.

As every year, last year we answered the survey of the international platform EcoVadis. It is a sustainability assessment platform for global supply chains. Their aim is to facilitate the integration of sustainability criteria into customer / supplier relationships. The platform is considered one of the largest and most reliable providers of sustainability ratings for companies.

In DPDgroup, we again achieved a stable result of 68/100 (compared to 2020). A good result allows us to maintain the certificate with a gold level, which places us in the top 6 % of companies evaluated by EcoVadis in our industry.

For DPDgroup, completing the EcoVadis survey means that customers can easily access an independent assessment of our commitment to sustainable development. This means that we can compare our performance with the entire industry.

Unfortunately, the EcoVadis methodology not only considers our responses, but also the public information in the media about our company, which has meant that we have not improved the assessment. The good side of this, however, is that we have managed to keep the high score stable, which still reflects our improvements in sustainable performance.

The overall assessment can be divided into 4 categories that reflect the company's achievements on 4 topics of corporate social responsibility: environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. DPDgroup's sustainable business is described as "Advanced". This means that our structured and proactive sustainable approach is valued and supported by our commitments and tangible action on key issues. The points we got for these 4 categories are:

  • 90/100 for the environment - which puts us in the top 2%,
  • 60/100 for labor and human rights - which puts us in the top 30%,
  • 60/100 for ethics - which puts us in the top 27%,
  • 50/100 for sustainability - which puts us in the top 23%.

The topics being evaluated remain the key goals of our company, so we will continue to strive to improve our results and work on public opinion so that EcoVadis results can be even higher in the coming years.
