Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept of the social commitment of businesses. In other words, businesses assuming responsibility for the impact of their activities on the environment and on the lives of their stakeholders, for example employees and subcontractors.

Why is CSR so important to DSV?

We have always been aware of and acknowledge our corporate social responsibility as one of the world's largest transport and logistics providers. We find it only natural to take good care of our employees and the environment and to ensure that our work is based on an ethical business model.

Our CSR commitment

We are highly committed to improving our CSR performance, and we believe that this positive approach creates value for and is relevant to our business and reputation. Furthermore, we are convinced that our approach to CSR will have a positive impact on the quality of our services and the general performance of DSV.

United Nations Global Compact initiatives

Our approach to CSR is determined by four important areas: human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption. These four areas accord with the United Nations Global Compact initiative nd are the reason why we joined the Global Compact in 2009. The Global Compact is an initiative for the business community to help promote a socially responsible and sustainable development in the world. The Global Compact lays down ten principles within the four important areas mentioned above.

Joining the Global Compact reflects DSV's desire to join a universally respected and accepted initiative that provides a common framework for decent conduct and to assume our share of the responsibility for helping to solve the major global issues concerning the areas mentioned.

DSV urges all its cooperation partners to support the United Nations Global Compact initiative.
