Our green solutions help our customers in reducing their carbon footprint.

Optimized transport routes, vehicles with alternative drive systems and energy-efficient warehouses: There are many ways to reduce climate-damaging CO2 emissions and other environmental impacts in the transportation and storage of goods.

Working with our customers, we want to leverage this potential. At DHL, we call this GOGREEN. We believe that environmental protection and business success are not just compatible, they are closely interlinked.

GOGREEN Products and Services

With our expertise and global presence, we can offer our business customers a broad portfolio of green products and services. By providing detailed Carbon Reports*, we show them where they stand in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. Though CO2 emissions have the biggest impact on climate change within logistcs we also report other greenhouse gases (GHG) like methane or nitrous oxide. And in accordance to the internationally recognized, cross-sector standard 'Greenhouse Gas Product Lifecycle Accounting and Reporting' we also take upstream emissions into account that originate in the production and transport of fuel and energy.
In our Green Optimization* service, we work with customers to identify areas for improvement, and ways to achieve a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. We analyze our customers’ entire logistics chain, and work with them to optimize trade routes and transportation modes. Additionally, we suggest ways to improve their overall environmental performance.
And to compensate for unavoidable emissions, we offer Climate Neutral* services. Participating in the voluntary emissions trading scheme, we purchase carbon credits from selected projects, reducing emissions and benefitting local communities. Since January 2014 we do not only offset CO2 but other greenhouse gases like methane or nitrous oxide as well, taking GOGREEN from carbon neutral to climate neutral. Based on the new GHG Protocol for Products we also include upstream emissions from the production and transport of fuels and energy.
