DHL helps othersBONN: September 20, 2017. Deutsche Post DHL has begun its seventh annual global 'Volunteer Day' program that ends on October 01 to encourage its more than 500,000 employees to make a difference in their local communities via non-profit projects.

Last year company employees spent 365,000 hours volunteering for nearly 2,500 social and environmental projects, a 40 percent increase over 2015.

Activities planned this year range from reading to children in kindergartens and rebuilding homes in areas affected by natural disasters, to planting one million trees and organizing donation drives.

Whether it is supporting teenagers with job application workshops, or serving meals to people in need, the majority of the projects are part of the company's 'GoTeach', 'GoHelp'and 'GoGreen' initiatives that form the group's Sustainability culture.

More than 15,000 employees also participate in long-term community initiatives and the company has set up a fund to help them help others - including refugees.

"Community involvement is a fundamental principle of our corporate culture," explained Christof Ehrhart, EVP for Corporate Communications and Responsibility. "Because we believe that our contributions to society and the environment also make our business stronger, [we] are committed to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by the year 2050, as well as train and certify 80 percent of the employees as GoGreen specialists by 2025," he added.
