Since its inception in 2011, Global Volunteer Day (GVD) has become a major component and driver of employee volunteer work across the Group. GVD provides a platform for employees to realize community projects in close collaboration with independent local organizations and charities. The Group aims to do its part to contribute to a better world, with a particular emphasis on the areas of GoGreen (protecting the environment), GoHelp (disaster preparation), and GoTeach (improving educational and vocational opportunities).
Volunteer work in the context of GVD is not limited to a single day or single project, but is designed to promote lasting ties between our employees and the many local non-profits and charities in which they are involved. The number of local volunteer projects has grown steadily in the past few years. Deutsche Post DHL Group is proud that every year, more and more employees dedicate themselves to volunteer engagement.
