Creating sustainable value for tomorrow, today
Our ESG approach can empower your own sustainability journey through the ESG commitments of our Sustainability Roadmap.
With our focus on creating sustainable value for tomorrow, today, you can rest assured you’re working with a responsible logistics partner that will enable you to:
Clean operations for climate protection
Every product has a waste, energy and CO2e footprint – and so does yours. The proportion that is contributed by logistics can be significant.
That's why we work together with you to design, implement and scale solutions to reduce our environmental impact.
Our goals on the path to climate-neutral logistics by 2050

e-vehicles for pick-up and delivery
design for all our own new buildings
We involve you too…
Sustainable business practices need to be spread.
So, if you’re a DHL customer, we can work with you to ensure that your transport and packaging meets all your requirements while using minimal resources.
See how we’re going green today
We’re taking immediate steps to reduce carbon emissions, cut waste and recycle wherever we can.
Installing solar panels (1) and heat pumps (2) reduces our usage of mains electricity. We also recycle cardboard extensively (3) and cut down on plastics.
We’re installing smart lighting systems (4) in our warehouses, with sensors that ensure lights are only switched on when they’re actually needed.
Waste reduction is also a priority, so we recycle as much spent materials as possible (5) to eliminate going to landfill.
A great company to work for all
We continuously strive to provide a safe, inclusive and purpose-driven workplace rooted in our guiding principles of Respect and Results.

Diversity and inclusion are our strengths…
We have a truly diverse workforce, with 179 different nationalities represented in our German locations alone. What’s more, we strive to build a culture that welcomes people on their ability, with zero tolerance for discrimination by gender, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation/identity.
We promote an inclusive work environment, guided by mutual respect, openness, honesty and a spirit of trust and cooperation.
A highly trusted company
Trust, transparency and compliance are integral to your business.
A robust ESG governance underpins our licence to operate and sets our foundation of integrity and compliant business practices to protect our shareholder's investments and your brand reputation.
Respect for human rights worldwide
Our Human Rights Policy Statement and management system ensure responsible business practices in our daily work as well as operations for our customers.
We strive for a consistent balance between ecology, economy and society, and our GoPrograms help us to do exactly that. Each region has its own programs. For example, in Germany we have worked hard to integrate refugees into the workplace, and have so far hired 17,000 refugees.
