Risks and opportunities


DPDHL receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. The company has targets to reduce its emissions and increase the proportion of low-carbon vehicles and fuels it uses. Crucially, DPDHL’s strategy includes subcontracted activities, which make up approximately 80% of its emissions. However, despite a robust transition plan, the company’s emissions intensity has been steadily increasing between 2015 and 2020. The company must accelerate the implementation of its strategy to be able to align with a 1.5°C pathway in the future.
