Delivery company DPD awards grants of up to £2000 to green projects through its Eco Fund.
Anyone can apply, although the particularly encourages schools and educational facilities working on green projects with their students, and start-up companies working on developing environmentally friendly products.
The Eco Fund is funded by DPD’s circular economy initiative to protect the environment. The plastic shrink wrap used in their operation is broken down, and then recycled to create new plastic shrink wrap. DPD also re-use and recycle the wooden pallets used in their depots and the money generated from both these initiatives goes straight into the Eco Fund.
