Independent non-profit organization CDP, previously known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, has awarded Deutsche Post DHL Group an environmental management score of ‘A-‘ and named the company as a Sector Leader for the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) as part of its 2016 Climate Change Report.
CDP awards Sector Leader status to companies that, in comparison to other companies in their industry, demonstrate a high degree of transparency with regard to climate-change activities and performance, including defining targets, achieving emissions cuts via reduction measures and/or verification of reported data. DHL was recognized as a Sector Leader for the Transportation category.
Christof Ehrhart, director corporate communications and responsibility at Deutsche Post DHL, said, “More and more today, our stakeholders measure the success of Deutsche Post DHL Group not just on business performance and financial strength, but on its commitment to social and environmental responsibility.
“CDP’s very positive assessment of our environmental management system will encourage us to maintain our trajectory and continue our success in creating solutions that improve both our own environmental performance and that of our customers.”
