DPD scoops Oceansaver Award
DPD has won the Oceansaver award from Waterlogic, which recognises our commitment throughout the organisation to reduce the quantity of single-use plastic bottles that are polluting the world’s oceans.
DPD has saved over 1 million plastic bottles being used by giving all our people metal reusable water bottles and installing 90 refill stations across the network. One million plastic bottles is the equivalent of 82.8 tonnes of CO2 - or 4,100 trees growing for one year.
edie Awards - Fleet Management Initiative of the Year
Team DPD topped the 'Fleet Management Initiative of the Year' category at the renowned edie awards, the 'Oscars' of the Sustainability sector. This is the second year running that we have won this award.
DPD was the only parcel company amongst this year's 25 category winners and was recognised for our 25-25-25 vision (to deliver 100 million parcels a year on all-electric vehicles in 25 UK cities by 2025) and the way that we are re-engineering our operations to reduce CO2 emissions.
