DPL - Giving Something Back

Saffron Walden based Dairy Pipe Lines (DPL) has marked the beginning of the New Decade by planting a tree in nearby Cambridge woodland, symbolising the continued success of the company and to demonstrate appreciation of the people within it. At the beginning of March, Stephen Sharp, Managing Director of DPL, planted a Silver Birch tree in recognition of the endless dedication shown by the workforce: “As we come out of the global recession, I'm delighted to say that due to a highly motivated workforce, who have shown that they were ready and willing to fully embrace the challenges that 2009 had to offer, the company emerges even stronger than before. This seemed to me to be a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the environment and most importantly to pay tribute to the team and through them, our continued growth.”
He added “I also recognise that every individual has a personal story which they may wish to commemorate, so with this in mind each employee will be given an opportunity to dedicate a single flower bulb to something or somebody that has touched their lives, these will be planted at the base of the tree, and for each dedicated bulb the company will donate £5 to any registered charity of the employee’s choice. It always feels great to be able to give something back and I feel that the people that make up the business deserve recognition of their individual contribution.”
The event took place in Upwell, with the help of Mathew Leet of The Green Balance, a company that specialises in the planting of trees and the creation of new English woodland amidst the stunning countryside of Cambridge and the Norfolk borders.
