Environmental protection with GOGREEN
The transport sector, which also encompasses the logistics industry, is responsible for 23% of the world’s energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. As the world’s largest logistics service provider, we have a special obligation to minimize the negative impact of our business on the environment. At the same time, our stakeholders, including our customers, increasingly expect us to fulfill this obligation.
Carbon Efficiency Performance: Calculating & Managing Emissions
Managing emissions and improving the carbon efficiency of our business is impossible without transparency. Emissions data needs to reflect trends and developments in our business. It needs to be available and reliable.
Increasing Efficiency & Promoting Green Technologies
Green strategies and technologies are key to achieving our efficiency targets, and two core principles guide our efforts along the way. First and foremost is the principle of “burn less”, which means reducing energy consumption wherever possible, without necessarily changing the energy source.
Shared Value through GOGREEN Products & Services
The success of our business revolves around offering our customers high-quality, dependable products and services at competitive prices. Far more goes into a healthy relationship between a company and its customers than just product, price and quality, however.
Non-carbon Factors: Reducing Noise & Waste, Conserving Natural Resources
Our Group-wide environmental management system extends beyond CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. We also address other negative environmental impacts and work to develop measures to mitigate their impacts. The impacts include local air pollutants such as mono-nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxides and particulate matter. Noise pollution is another increasingly important environmental concern.
Innovations for Logistics of the Future
For us, corporate responsibility means creating business models that benefit both our company and society. Technological innovation plays a key role in this process, which is why we established DHL Customer Solutions & Innovation (CSI). CSI bundles our research and development work in the area of new technologies and, working together with other entities across the Group, develops innovative ideas from the concept stage through to market-ready products and services.
