Increasing positive impact,

Reducing negative effects

Every day, DPG Media reports on what’s going on in society and how it’s changing. Some brands have been doing this for hundreds of years. The way in which we create our media also impacts society and the environment.

The six pillars of ESG policy (Environmental, Social and Governance) guide DPG media in increasing positive impact and reducing negative effects. This can only be achieved by working together, just like we do when we create our media.

Many people within DPG Media are passionate about implementing the aforementioned pillars. The next few pages outline the results of the efforts of dozens of our colleagues. This year, we’ll continue to build upon the firm foundation created in 2023. Working on societal impact is a permanent process. Reducing our ecological footprint will receive more attention than ever in 2024. The environmental impact of making media will be given more weight in the decisions to be made. It’s very fitting, therefore, that we’ll be moving into Mediavaert this year. It’s an office building that’s both green in terms of experience and because of its minimal impact on the surroundings. Let this set the tone for the rest of the year.
