Annual Report 2017

Mission Statement

dpa is a networked company. It is only through cooperation that a news agency like dpa can operate successfully and create the economic basis for independent reporting. That has been our guiding principle since dpa was founded in 1949. In today’s digitalized media world the idea of creating networks is more important than ever. We have to continuously interpret networking in a contemporary way.

That is why this annual report deals with the topic intensively – and with what it means for dpa. We mean building networks within the corporate group, networks of teams and people at dpa and naturally networks with you – our shareholders, customers and partners.

Our cover image is a prelude: political correspondent Teresa Dapp and Marco Mierke, the Head of dpa’s English-Language Global New Service, are shown in the Berlin newsroom discussing domestic and international news reporting.
