We take responsibility for the societies and environments we affect

Steps towards a more sustainable DFDS

At DFDS, we move products and people by land and sea. This, however, leaves a large carbon footprint. It is our responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment. See what is our ambition and how we are planning to get there, one step at a time.

2 CSR strategy pillars

Sustainability is in our DNA

As a transport and logistics provider, we contribute to safeguard and develop the infrastructure to move goods and passengers. We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and ensuring that our employees are safe, healthy, and treated equally. We put sustainability first and invest in innovative services and technologies.

Our sustainability strategy is closely tied to UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3, 5, 13, 14, and 17. The two overarching themes, Environmental Footprint and Caring Employer, are each supported by three ambitions. We continuously add individual metrics to measure progress.

We want to be a caring employer

Sustainable business is about people. We want to ensure well-being for all our employees and support their physical and mental health. We want people to be happy when they go to work and when they go home. We strive to be an inclusive and multicultural workplace and believe that diverse groups and teams make better decisions. We also support individual employees and groups of colleagues at DFDS in taking initiatives to do good and to care about each other in the local communities where we operate.
