Olly Craughan joined delivery company DPD UK in 2012 as an Operations Manager, progressing to Depot General Manager in 2014 and was then promoted in February 2020 to the role of heading up DPD’s corporate social responsibility strategy.
DPD UK is leading the way in green and sustainable delivery, successfully growing its electric, final mile, delivery fleet to over 700 vehicles in 2020; and now they have launched their ambitious Vision 25-25-25 strategy to deliver zero emissions to 25 towns and cities across the UK by the end of 2025.
DPD’s sustainability strategy goes beyond the final mile delivery; all DPD depots, hubs and offices are powered by 100% renewable electricity and 100% of waste avoids landfill, of which 70% is recycled.
In 2020 DPD launched the Eco Fund which supports small community and school environmental projects. This is financed by DPD’s circular economy initiatives in recycling waste plastic and wood, since February the Eco Fund has donated £188,000 to 94 projects.
