Our mission as the leading mail and logistics company is to connect people and improve their lives. Because of the sheer size of our company and its significance for global commerce, we believe we have an added responsibility to our employees, to society and the environment.
This keen sense of social and environmental responsibility has a significant influence on the way Deutsche Post DHL Group does business and forms the backbone of our company culture. Corporate responsibility is an integral component of our corporate strategy. Our goal is to become Provider, Employer and Investment of Choice – and to become a benchmark company for responsible business. Deutsche Post DHL’s business goals and sustainability targets are directly related. Today, more and more customers consider a company's social value when deciding on a service provider.
With sustainability and responsibility as integral components of our corporate strategy, we are committed to meeting the demands of the business, our stakeholders, society and the environment. We work together with our stakeholders to identify the action areas considered essential for our company. As part of a materiality analysis conducted during the course of the reporting year, we have identified eight material issues, along with performance indicators (KPIs) and target objectives. With the help of these KPIs we can also measure progress made in implementing our long-term corporate strategy.
