Towards a more digital and greener Postal Era


The DigiGreeNPost project intents to bring resilience to the postal industry through the provision of upskilling  and  reskilling  opportunities  for  postal  employees  in  green  and  digital  competence areas, acting  as  an  enabler  towards  the  implementation  of  digital  and  green  policy  agendas, building  the  understanding  of  the  importance  of  digital  and  green-related  jobs  throughout  the sector”.
