The DB Cargo Group operates globally, but in every country where it is present, influences positively local economies.

DB Cargo Polska analyzes its direct influence on economy on three levels. Direct impact is measured by effects for economy, which result from the Company’s daily business, which mean added value that we create in our services, created workplaces, paid taxes, renumerations we pay our employees.
Digging deeper, the company analyzes its direct impact on the economy through cooperation with other entities from different industries and sectors, such as suppliers and manufacturers. The development of their business results in creating added value, new workplaces and renumerations, and that means increase in household incomes.
Household incomes, generated by DB Cargo Polska both directly – among its employees, and indirectly – among the employees of suppliers and subcontractors, also support the development of Polish GDP in a form of consumption expenses. This effect is another influence – a so-called induced effect.
"A better understanding of the influence of the Company’s business helps us in responsible management and the Company’s growth, based on the principle of sustainable growth in every dimension."
