    At DLL, we consider sustainability essential to our and our partners’ long-term success. It creates business and delivers important social and environmental benefits. Read more about the 3 pillars of DLL’s sustainability approach below.

    Sustainable solutions

    We do not just adapt to the trend of  'use, not own', but we actively contribute to the circular economy by creating sustainable business solutions (like our management of assets throughout their entire technical life program: Life Cycle Asset Management). We also want to be your preferred supplier of clean technology.


    Societal impact

    We try to have a positive impact on the communities in which we operate through financial contributions and expertise provided via employee volunteer programs. In emerging countries, we improve access to (micro) leasing solutions to achieve economic development.


    Responsible business operations

    We are committed to reduce our environmental footprint and measure our impact on the environment and climate change. We aim to meet our reduction targets through resource optimization, changes in behavior, and technological innovation. We uphold high standards of ethical behavior in the way we do business, and we strive to improve our impact on the environment.


    DLL & Rabobank Group

    DLL is a fully owned subsidiary of Rabobank Group, an international all-finance organization. Rabobank is important for us in different ways - as our parent, our partner, our customer, and funder.
