Growing with our stakeholders

Our business is to move and connect goods and people. In December 2016 we had been doing so for 150 years. Part of the secret of our company’s longevity is a deep-seated belief in taking good care of our customers and all other stakeholders, including the environment.

DFDS’ business model revolves around the operation of ferry routes carrying freight and passengers and providing transport and logistics solutions to a diverse range of manufacturers. A large part of the solutions are carried out using the ferry route network.

In relation to the reporting of activities that fit into the umbrella of CSR, the key goals are to limit the impact of activities on the environment, keep people and goods safe, secure jobs and good working conditions, support social initiatives and be a diverse company as regards nationality, gender, race and age. We also protect our company against fraud and seek to communicate and engage with our stakeholders in a trustworthy manner at all times.

Responsible Supply Chain Management

In December 2015, DFDS joined the IMPA ACT, which is a responsible supply chain management programme. The programme has been developed by Danish Shipowners J.
