Introduction

DSV Panalpina becomes even more transparent on climate performance towards investors and customers.

Stakeholders are increasingly expecting companies to focus more on climate when setting their targets, and that they identify climate-related risks and opportunities in relation to their business.

DSV Panalpina is already on this journey with our purpose to reduce our CO2 emissions by setting approved Science Based Targets and we have set a clear strategy towards these targets. By supporting the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) this is a way for us to acknowledge the importance of the financial community in this transformation.

TCFD is one among a number of reporting frameworks within corporate responsible reporting that DSV Panalpina is working with. Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”), Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”), EU Taxonomy and others are standards that we during 2021 will closely look into. Our corporate responsibility reporting is already GRI compliant and similar to our approach to TCFD we will conduct a gap analysis between the existing reporting and the SASB framework with a view to have a complete mapping available during the course of 2021.

The table below shows DSV Panalpina’s initial response to the TCFD recommendations, with reference to our disclosures in our 2020 Corporate Responsibility Report and Annual Report
