DPD is partnering with L Marks to launch an EcoLab initiative focused on carbon reduction in transport, delivery, and buildings.
This will bring together experts in sustainability, technology, and innovation to develop and test new ideas that can help DPD further reduce its carbon footprint.
It is pitched as key step towards the company’s goal of reaching net zero by 2040.
Tim Jones, Director of Marketing, Communications & Sustainability DPDgroup UK, comments: “We are delighted to be partnering with L Marks to launch this EcoLab.”
“The project will play a key part in shaping our sustainability strategy and helping achieve our stated aim of being the most sustainable parcel delivery company in the UK.”
“Investing in and developing new sustainable technologies and innovations is crucial in the next few years to ensure we can reach net zero, and partnering with experts in this way can accelerate that progress.”
L Marks will scout and identify businesses to apply for an opportunity to take part.
The EcoLab will be a ten-week programme where participants will get the chance to validate their solutions, gain access to DPD’s network and resources, and mentorship from industry experts.
Applications open today and close on 16th July.
“We are excited to be working with DPD on this important initiative,” says Daniel Saunders, CEO at L Marks.
“The EcoLab is a testament to DPD’s commitment to sustainability and their willingness to embrace new ideas and technologies to achieve their goals.”
“As the world becomes more conscious of the impact of carbon emissions, companies like DPD are leading the way in finding innovative solutions that safeguard the planet for future generations”.
