The Eco Fund is funded by DPD's circular economy initiative to protect the environment. The plastic shrink wrap used in DPD's 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 into the Eco Fund.
Objectives of Fund
The Fund seeks to support local organisations that are delivering green projects and environment-friendly initiatives.
Grants of up to £2,000 are available.
An applicant will only be eligible to receive a maximum of one donation from the Fund in any two-year period.
Any monies transferred from the Fund to an applicant shall be considered a donation and not an investment.
Who Can Apply
To be eligible to apply for a donation from the Fund, applications must be made on behalf of a:
- Third sector organisation.
- Community organisation.
- Small or medium enterprise with less than 10 employees.
Each application must be accompanied by a quote(s) for the goods or services for which the donation is going to be used.
DPD particularly encourages applications on behalf of schools and educational facilities across the UK working on green projects with their students, and start-up companies working on developing environmentally friendly products.
If an application is unsuccessful, the applicant may re-apply with the same idea in the following month. Applications for the same idea in any one month will not be considered by DPD.
Funding is intended to be used to enable the delivery of green projects and environmental initiatives.
How To Apply
Applications may be made at any time and DPD will review all applications on a monthly basis.
The online application form is available at DPD's Our Green Journey website.
