DP Eurasia’s contribution to sustainability is driven by the
Group’s efforts and interest by initiating new projects,
adapting our strategy to current regulations and investing
in future generations. Our aim is to strengthen and
incorporate our sustainability strategy throughout all
of our operations. The expectations of our stakeholders
commands a greater focus on sustainability and in
business this is not an option, but an obligation. Alongside
our stakeholders, the expectations and interests of
companies are also aligned to sustainability concerns such
as climate change and employee welfare. As the business
starts to adopt sustainability as a core value, we empower
and grow our strategy according to business demands and
trends. Yet this is not only a business requirement, but an
issue of evolving global consciousness. Consequently, we
are pleased to announce that 2021 has been a remarkable
year for us in terms of complying with our business model
from a sustainability perspective.
Our strategy and goals will be a driving success for the
business and will create value for all our stakeholders.
We are highly motivated to decrease our environmental
impacts and will take continued action to mitigate and
adapt to the possible impacts of climate change through
our Eurasia operations. On that account, we are lining up
our reporting with an external framework that is promoted
by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board
(“SASB”) and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial
Disclosures (“TCFD”). This part of the report displays
information on DP Eurasia’s actions, assessments and
related application towards aligning the recommendations
of the TCFD, which is the first self-standing risk
assessment in line with this framework.
By publishing this report, we aim to summarise the progress we have made by including climate change risks and
opportunities into our overall business strategy. Our communications on this progress include the different geographic
locations where DP Eurasia operations are conducted. Regarding the different dimensions of operations, some countries
are taking the lead in building their understanding of climate risks and opportunities. We are glad to announce that we
are not alone in this journey, since the Group’s efforts and interest in sustainability continues to grow with the new and
existing projects and initiatives. As a consequence, this report represents an important development which will enhance
and expand our sustainability understanding towards our stakeholders.
DP Eurasia has committed itself to achieving net zero emissions by 2050. This part of the report discloses our first year
emissions assessments and targets according to our baseline year, which is 2021.
The methodology of defining DP Eurasia’s focus climate-related areas
For the first step of the study, both the global and local agenda, and sectoral best practice examples, were discussed
in the analysis of sustainability trends and climate-related risks. Industry-specific materiality issues recommended by
the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”) and the World Economic Forum’s global risk projections were
reviewed in depth.
In the next step of the study, climate-related risk assessments and actions were discussed in the ESG meetings, where it
was highlighted by the participation of the top Board members, Chairs of related committees, department leaders and
In the respect of primary operational action plans, climate-related risks were determined. Annual actions and prioritised
targets were evaluated and, by doing so, four main climate-related focus areas were decided upon by taking four
different geographical operations of DP Eurasia. As has been reported, the risk assessment was decided in regard to
the operation size, dynamics and potential opportunities, and an annual target plan within the scope of environmental
metrics was also established for DP Eurasia.
The four highlighted themes are being tracked by DP Eurasia’s Sustainability Committee. The committee has a leading
role in connecting related activities and targets by aligning them with TCFD recommendations and managing the
operation at a global level.
