Olly Craughan has been with DPD since joining as a Depot General Manager in 2012. In January 2020 Olly took on the challenge to lead DPD’s strategy to become the UK’s leader in sustainable delivery.
As Head of Sustainability at DPD UK Olly has driven a number of decarbonisation initiatives that have reduced total emissions by over 34% since 2020. These have included increasing the EV fleet from 149 in January 2020 to over 3,600 by the end of 2023 and transitioning the Linehaul fleet to 100% HVO.
DPD’s sustainability mission goes further, and includes depots, hubs and offices, all powered by 100% renewable electricity. 100% of waste avoids landfill, of which over 90% is reused or recycled. In addition, the highly innovative Eco Fund supports biodiversity, rewilding and environmental projects, and is financed by DPD’s circular economy initiatives in recycling waste, plastic and wood.
