Risks and opportunities


DSV receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. Based on its current owned and subcontracted fleet , DSV is projected to greatly exceed its carbon budget between 2022-2036 but the size of the company’s own road fleet is negligible. Its subcontracted fleet exceeded its carbon budget by 8% between 2016 and 2021. The company has not committed to a net-zero target. However, the company has developed its logistics optimisation and CO2 calculation and management tools and it is rolling them out to all of its customers and suppliers.
