Global logistics provider DHL, part of the Deutsche post DHL Group, has launched a new tool to help customers reduce their carbon footprint.
The DHL GoGreen Dashboard is “a new seamless emissions reporting solution for Deutsche Post DHL Group’s large cross-divisional customers, which provides transparency according to recognised industry standards like the GLEC Framework or the recently published ISO 14083”, a statement said.
The GoGreen platform is customisable and free of charge. It makes the reporting process more efficient by eliminating the need to access multiple systems and reports, thereby contributing to more informed decision-making, DHL said.
GoGreen will be rolled out to DHL’s top 100 cross-divisional customers initially, expanding in scope later in 2023.
DHL unveiled the new emissions reporting tool at its Era of Sustainable Logistics Global Summit 2023, held on 25–27 April in Valencia, Spain – the European Green Capital 2024.
“As we face the challenges of the climate emergency, it is clear that sustainability must be at the forefront of our efforts. By prioritizing cleaner, greener logistics and working together, I truly believe that we can drive meaningful progress towards achieving sustainable supply chains,” said Katja Busch, chief commercial officer at DHL and head of customer solutions and innovation (CSI).
“The DHL Era of Sustainable Logistics Global Summit 2023 is an opportunity for community building, and we are excited to be the ones to facilitate this summit; collaboration is a must to achieve progress. We owe it to future generations to take bold action and make commitments to protect our planet now.”
DHL also used the summit to highlight its own sustainability milestones, which form part of the Group’s 2050 Mission that seeks to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
“Since the announcement of our sustainability roadmap in March 2021, we have already made significant progress in our journey towards a more sustainable future – with the deployment of electric vehicles, the purchase of SAF, the transformation and construction of carbon-neutral buildings, and the expansion of new green services,” said Yin Zou, executive vice president of corporate development at Deutsche Post DHL Group.
Specifically, last year, the Group successfully secured over 830 million litres of SAF (sustainable aviation fuel) until 2026. It has also ordered up to 12 fully electric cargo aircraft, and introduced over 30,000 e-vehicles in its delivery fleet worldwide.
In addition, 52.1% of DHL Supply Chain’s facilities are carbon neutral, including 76 new buildings designed and built according to carbon-neutral guidelines.
The company’s GoGreen Plus services are available on all core products and provide customers with the option of sustainable supply chains, while the new GoGreen Dashboard demonstrates DHL’s commitment to moving the green agenda forward through new initiatives.
