DHL Express, one of the world’s largest logistics companies, has announced the launch of a new service called GoGreen Plus that enables customers to reduce the carbon emissions associated with their shipments through the use of sustainable aviation fuel.
The new service, which is a first for global express carriers, will be initially launched in the UK, followed by Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates.
The service is fully flexible and can be selected for individual shipments. GoGreen Plus is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s sustainability goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and contributes to the interim target of using 30% sustainable aviation fuel for all air transport by 2030.
John Pearson, CEO DHL Express, said, “We know our customers are committed to reducing their environmental impact, so it’s important we’re giving them the means to do so. I’m delighted that our investment in SAF can now be fully leveraged by customers to enable them to bring down the emissions of their shipments. SAF is currently the primary route to reducing carbon emissions in aviation, so this is the most effective way to help our customers make their own supply chains more sustainable.”
