DKV Mobility Headquarters

  • Sustainability/ESG ratings: DKV Mobility among top 1 percent of companies assessed worldwide by EcoVadis and Sustainalytics
  • DKV Mobility customers are increasingly turning to alternative and renewable fuels

DKV Mobility, the leading European B2B platform for on-the-road payments and solutions, releases its Sustainability Report 2023, which highlights the ESG strategy (environmental, social, governance) as well as the company's commitments and progress with regard to the implementation of its ESG goals.

In 2023, DKV Mobility reduced its Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) by 50.4 percent compared to the base year 2019. The company has thus achieved the first part of its Green Pledge, which it announced in 2021: to reduce its CO₂ emissions in the scope of its own operations by 50 percent by the end of 2023. This achievement underscores DKV Mobility‘s commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable growth. The second part of the Green Pledge aims to reduce the carbon intensity of its customers' fleet by 30 percent by 2030 compared to the base year 2019.

“By reducing our Corporate Carbon Footprint by 50.4 percent, we have impressively demonstrated that we stand by our Green Pledge and are pursuing our ESG goals with great dedication. We are now continuing this path to further improve both our own ESG performance and that of our customers in times of the energy transition. Fully in line with our corporate purpose: To drive the transition towards an efficient and sustainable future of mobility”, says Marco van Kalleveen, CEO at DKV Mobility.

Laura Cremer-Heesen, Head of Sustainability at DKV Mobility, adds: “The Green Pledge achievement is a great team effort, as we were able to successfully and jointly implement many decarbonization measures across the entire company. But we are also taking responsibility for the remaining CO₂ emissions by investing in certified climate protection projects around the world. We now continue to pursue our ambitious goals as we are in the process of submitting new science-based climate targets to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)*.”

Shifting towards green mobility

Offering its customers access to around 710,000 public and semi-public EV charge points, DKV Mobility has built one of the largest acceptance networks for electric vehicles across Europe. The company only exceeded the 500,000 EV charge point mark in June 2023 and has since connected an average of around 21,000 EV charging points per month. In addition to the significant expansion of the charging acceptance network, the demand for EV charge cards is growing rapidly. By the end of 2023, DKV Mobility managed around 592,000 EV charge cards for its customers, more than tripling the number of charge cards compared to the previous year. Acting technology open, DKV Mobility also offers its customers access to alternative fuels such as CNG, LNG and hydrogen and managed to increase the consumption of these alternative fuels by DKV Mobility customers by more than 20 percent per annum.

Major progress in social sustainability

DKV Mobility has also driven forward its comprehensive ESG strategy in the area of promoting gender diversity and its goals in the area of corporate citizenship and has made significant progress. Women make up almost half of the workforce at DKV Mobility and hold 38 percent of all leadership positions. The approximately 2,400 employees of DKV Mobility come from 60 nations. To support non-profit organizations, DKV Mobility has now issued over 1,700 NGO Cards +Charge (service cards without a card fee) in six European countries. The company also supports its local community at the company sites as part of a Community Day, on which around 400 DKV Mobility employees spent a day working on around 20 local social and ecological projects in 2023. Moreover, DKV Mobility was rated under the Top 1 percent of companies assessed worldwide by leading Sustainability/ESG rating agencies Sustainalytics and EcoVadis.

The DKV Mobility Sustainability Report was subject to an independent assurance audit before publication. In doing so, the company has already set the course for the upcoming integrated reporting in line with the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, CSRD). Moreover, DKV Mobility is committed to developing and submitting new science-based climate targets to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).
