Committed To Sustainability

The DPP Committed to Sustainability programme is an industry leading scheme celebrating and promoting good practice in environmental sustainability, across the media industry.

In the face of growing concern about climate change, many in the media industry are becoming aware of the need to play their part in improving the sustainability of our industry. That’s why we developed the DPP Committed to Sustainability programme. The programme provides a practical tool to assess your organisation's progress against key environmental measures, and a common framework for procurement teams to assess the environmental impact of their suppliers. Most of all, it enables you to better understand your organisation's current status, and demonstrate a commitment to continuous improvement.

How do I take part?

You can take part in the programme by completing the online Committed to Sustainability checklist. Once you successfully complete the checklist, you'll be given your sustainability score, and you'll be awarded the DPP Committed to Sustainability mark. You can get started below, or contact our Business Development Manager to find out more before you begin.


The fees for a new submission or a renewal will be as follows:

If your annual turnover is less than £2m - £250 + VAT

Otherwise - £500 + VAT

*Invoiced on receipt of a submission*

This fee covers reviewing and processing your submission or renewal.
