The best of the best
During the gala, both the companies that recorded the highest financial performance parameters and the winners of the non-financial categories were awarded, selected by a specially appointed jury consisting of representatives of the TSL industry, universities and editorial staff.
DPD Polska was the winner in the Ecology in Logistics category for its development of an electric car fleet and electric cargo bikes. On behalf of DPD Poland, Maksymilian Pawlowski, Corporate Communications Manager, accepted the award.
"We feel proud of the Chapter's decision that the activities within our sustainable development strategy are rated the highest in the TSL industry in Poland. This is thanks to our employees, co-workers, customers and business partners who are following the path with us, towards NET-ZERO by 2040. It is particularly gratifying to have been recognised by the Chapter for our solutions in the field of sustainable urban logistics and the rapidly progressing electrification of our fleet, which now numbers more than 420 cars. We are also delighted with the high evaluation of the development of our fleet of electric cargo bikes, of which we already have more than 70, which are perfect for last-mile logistics in cities." -
concluded Maksymilian Pawłowski.
Low-emission fleet a step towards NET-ZERO 2040
The successive growth of DPD Poland’s low-carbon fleet is the result of the green transformation of Geopost, the owner of DPD Poland, which has been implementing a sustainability plan in the spirit of carbon neutrality for several years. Geopost has committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 43% by 2030 and 90% by 2040 against a 2020 baseline. This ambitious NET-ZERO 2040 target has been validated by the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative.
