Recently our environment has been plagued by the increase of greenhouse gas emission, desertification, water pollution, air pollution, ozone depletion, accelerating deforestation and soil erosion, species collapse/extinction, and the melting of our polar ice caps. Although, it is difficult to balance our environment with economic strategies, Dimerco accepts the challenge to do its part in preserving our environment while continuing to expand in the market place. Dimerco is going green.
Make adjustments to the work environment to create a balance between productivity and developing environmentally-friendly accommodations.
Identify the needs and requirements of major customers on sustainability and green initiatives.
Offer the innovative service module to fit the green supply chain.
Develop a methodology to evaluate the environmental damage is being deduced and how performance is increasing.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The simplest part of going green involves reducing our usage of stationary, paper cups, chopsticks, and bottled water. Cans, bottles, and paper will be separated into appropriate recycling units. Employees will get into the habit of using non-disposable cups and eco-friendly items to eliminate waste. Additionally, looking at other opportunities such as purchasing remanufactured ink and toner cartridges not only saves the environment but it is less expensive than new cartridges. Dimerco will develop a green purchasing policy to reduce waste in the office. To help go green, Dimerco will produce durable cups and chopsticks as a gift to employees and our customers.
Build up Paperless and Green Working Environment through IT/IS Solutions
One of the best ways to reduce the carbon footprint is to enhance or/and utilize the available IT solutions in order to reduce or eliminate unnecessary resource consumption. Dimerco will continuously explore a variety of methods of going green by investing in information technology, development, and application. As of July 2017, Dimerco is ranked at: No. 8 by e-AWB penetration during Jan. to Jul. 2017 of Top-50 freight forwarder groups.
Internal Supply Chain
On August 1, 2009, Dimerco successfully deployed web 2.0 based Dimerco Value Plus System® which is capable of preserving natural resources by reducing paperwork through the automation of integrated work flow and process across the Supply Chain. By automating and integrating various parts of the internal supply chain processes, from Sales, Operation, Finance and Accounting, Dimerco not only improves our operation and management efficiency, but creates a paperless working environment.
Partnership with Alliance, Airline/Carrier and Customers
Through Data Integration (EDI) capability and solution, Dimerco is able to exchange the shipment information/data electronically with our agent partners, airlines/carriers and customers. This information interchange optimizes data accuracy and user efficiency, it also reduces consumption of resources such as paper (e.g. fax, printer) and electricity. (e.g. email, fax machine, printer)
Dimerco also participates in the e-freight project, which is facilitated by IATA (International Air Transport Association) with some of major Airlines to support this innovative, efficient, and environmentally friendly project that aims to take the paper out of air cargo supply chain process.
Internal Control & Policy Setup
By using the practice of one user for one workstation concept, Dimerco has established the IT Asset Procurement Policy which aims for information/data security, protection and management, as well as to classify user’s workstation entitlement based on his/her job functions/responsibilities/levels. Through this policy, Dimerco is able to allocate proper and appropriate resources to best suit the users need in their daily operations. This will ensure natural resources are being fully utilized. Along those lines, Dimerco also encourage our users to reuse and recycle whatever IT hardware (e.g. workstation, server, peripheral and etc.) that remain usable and not cause any electricity wastage.
Having an efficient transportation management system is another optimum way to reduce the carbon footprint left by Dimerco. Through the development of dedicated service modes of transportation and network optimization strategy based on our customers’ requirements Dimerco will be able to save transportation miles and fuel reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This is practiced currently through the Dimerco system. The Consolidation Yield Management® (CYM®) module consolidates all their shipments into one shipment resulting in reducing package and usage of space which optimizes the allocation arrangement of carriers to avoid the waste of resource and protect our environment.
Supply Chain Management
Efficiencies in supply chain management can be used to reduce the need for unnecessary transportation services. Dimerco is constantly growing with its customers and partners by providing time-defined international freight forwarding services as well as designing, implementing customized logistics management solutions. With our experienced logistics team worldwide and IT capability we would welcome the opportunity to better understand the customer’s unique needs and identify the strategy which the customer need for green success.

Dimerco does not tolerate unfair competition practices such as price fixing, misuse of information or trade secrets, confidential information received from past or present employees of our competitors or any other similar illegal actions.
Our staff must not misrepresent themselves or use any other form of deception to attain competitive advantage.
Such inappropriate actions may lead to disciplinary action or dismissal of offending employees. In some cases such violations may also lead to criminal or civil prosecution.

- Integrity is
The Integrity program does not address every conceivable business practice in every global location. It is intended to be used as a general guideline for the conduct of all Dimerco personnel and to communicate a realistic standard and minimum expectation for companies and individuals trading with us.
Each of the companies of the Dimerco must have in place its own specific Code of Conduct which must comply with the Integrity program. Any existing policies or Codes must be reviewed periodically to ensure compliance with the minimum requirements of the Integrity Program.
Integrity is intended to be applied intelligently and in a practical manner to all working practices in all locations in order to meet our ethical and legal commitments and enhance our business.

All employees of the Dimerco will receive this document and are obliged to behave in accordance with the Integrity program.
Where language or literacy levels are thought to restrict comprehension of the Code the regional management must ensure that all employees fully understand the requirements of this Code.
1.3 Integrity is a Commitment
The clear statements above are the foundation of our Integrity program. We are committed to implementing these standards in every location and recognize that they are fundamental to Dimerco’s future success.
Any Dimerco employee that becomes aware of any issue or practice that involves a potential violation of an applicable law or violation of any provision of the Integrity program has an affirmative responsibility to report the matter to their immediate management structure or to the Integrity helpline.
Dimerco commits that all reported violations will be properly investigated and that we will never impose any penalty or allow any kind of employment disadvantage to any employee for reporting illegal or unethical behavior unless such report is found to be deliberately untrue, malicious or vindictive. If the reporting employee was involved in activity that is found to violate this Code, the employee will be appropriately disciplined for the violation, though a voluntary disclosure may be given favorable consideration in the discipline process.
Any Dimerco employee in any location is invited to contact the Integrity helpline or relevant Dimerco legal department to clarify any questions, clear any doubts or discuss any concerns. The confidentiality of any report will be maintained strictly.
2.0 The Integrity Helpline
Every Dimerco employee in every location is invited to contact the Integrity helpline to clarify any questions, clear any doubts or discuss any concerns. This invitation extends to our customers, suppliers, partners, shareholders and any other interested party.

Our Ethics Code
April 1, 2013
Subject: Letter to Customers, Employees, and Agents: Our Ethics Code
In order to achieve the highest quality standards, our company has been working constantly to improve our structures and processes for the benefit of our customers. This applies not only to our service products, and management, but also to the behavior of our employees and agents. We place the highest priority on making our customers successful, knowing that customer success guarantees our own corporate success. One of our priority is to be governed by our knowledge of the global and local requirements of our customers and markets. We include and prioritize the customer focus in all our business processes, projects and dealings. We as a company stress our ethical, social and environmental obligations as much as the quality of our service. We therefore strive for best practices in all these areas to secure customer trust.
To achieve these goals, the Board of Directors of Dimerco Express Group (“DIMERCO” or “the Corporation”) has resolved to establish and maintain a compliance and ethics program which conforms to Dimerco’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct designed to detect and prevent violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) and of other application foreign bribery laws. In this respect, DIMERCO has adopted a clear corporate policy against violations of the FCPA and by these is required to establish compliance standards and procedures to be followed by its employees, consultants, and agents. These standards which have been embodied in our FCPA Compliance Program are reasonably capable of reducing the prospect of conduct which may violate the U.S. FCPA or the anti-bribery laws of other jurisdictions. By resolution the Board of the Corporation has established the following Policy as the cornerstone for establishing and maintaining its FCPA Policy and Compliance Guidance Program:
DIMERCO’S CORPORATE POLICY STATEMENT
