Deutsche Post DHL Group: New Sustainability Roadmap
Deutsche Post DHL Group decided on Science-Based Targets and invested EUR 7 billion in climate-neutral logistics by 2030.
Deutsche Post DHL Group is increasing the pace of its planned decarbonisation of the company.
By 2030, DPDHL plans the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to below 29 million tons from 33 million metric tons in 2020, despite the expected further growth in our global logistics activities. At least 30% of fuel requirements in aviation and line haul are to be covered by sustainable fuels. 60% of global delivery vehicles for the last mile are to be electrically powered up from 18% in 2020, hence more than 80,000 e-vehicles will be on the road. All new buildings being constructed will be climate-neutral.
DPDHL intends to further expand its social contribution to society in the coming years by committing to invest 1 % of its net profits annually in its social impact programmes and initiatives.
By 2022, the achievement of ESG targets will be taken into account by 30% when calculating the remuneration of the Board of Management – a clear signal that the commitment to sustainable business is a top priority at DPDHL.
“As the world’s largest logistics company, it is our responsibility to lead the way and guide the logistics industry into a sustainable future. We are turning our yellow group into a green company and making an important contribution to our planet and society,” Says Frank Appel, CEO.
“The Sustainability Roadmap was developed by the Corporate Board with the Corporate Development Team leading the efforts”
