DB Schenker Global Sustainability Framework

The sustainability framework helps to deliver on the company purpose statement of “advancing businesses and lives by shaping the way our world connects”.

At DB Schenker, we think about sustainability holistically. We benchmark our progress towards our Carbon Neutral 2040 target to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a global framework for driving coordinated sustainable action.

1. Clean Logistics – To significantly reduce the environmental impact for the planet by developing carbon neutral and low-waste offerings – and working closely with our customers and partners on industry solutions.

2. Thriving Communities - To improve the lives of people and their communities by providing fair, safe, and inclusive work conditions – across our operations and through sub-contractors

You can find our Social Minimum Standards here.

3. Shared Value – To create sustained customer value and supply chain resiliency through our products and operations – ensuring to create long-term value for our stakeholders.

4. Global Partnerships – In all our key markets, we engage with partners to drive sustainable goals and carbon emission reduction.

Our sustainability strategy is the baseline for our climate actions and carbon reduction measurements in order to create logistics for a sustainable future.
