DHL Global Forwarding have expanded their GoGreen Plus service to provide real emissions reductions through carbon insetting. After successfully introducing the GoGreen Plus Service for ocean freight, customers can now also easily neutralize their CO2 emissions for air freight on all trade lanes.
As carriers look at how they can help save the planet by reducing their carbon footprint DHL announce that DHL Customers can now easily pick and choose which parts of their supply chain they want to truly decarbonize. The GoGreen Plus Service can be easily added while booking online, e.g., an air freight shipment via the myDHLi customer platform. The launch of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s decarbonized range of GoGreen Plus products is a crucial milestone in making the global logistics industry greener and more sustainable. Other divisions are also in the process of developing their GoGreen Plus Service, as a part of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s sustainability strategy and designed as a Group-wide service offering.
It helps when customers can see exactly what they are doing to help reduce emissions. Focusing on sustainability within ecommerce is important but it can be easy to forget that a problem exists when we are not being shown what is being done to solve those problems or given easy ways to contribute. It’s easy asking people to be greener but the options need to be readily available to them.
Every airplane and vessel emit their exhaust gases into the same atmosphere, and it is not decisive on which route or which means of transport biofuels are used. From a technological standpoint, our GoGreen Plus Service is currently the simplest, most efficient and sustainable way to reduce CO2 emissions in transportation. As one of the world’s leading logistics service providers, we see it as our responsibility to lead the way to greener transportation and to set a good example for others to follow.– Thomas Mack, Global Head of Air Freight at DHL Global Forwarding.
