DHL Global Forwarding and IAG Cargo have partnered on the purchase of sustainable aviation fuel as part of efforts to reduce emissions.

The partnership sees the forwarder purchase 11.5m litres of SAF to reduce emissions in 2023.

DHL said that SAF being purchased is certified by International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) and produced from used cooking oil and food waste and has at least 80% lower lifecycle emissions than conventional jet fuel.

The move is part of the parent firm Deutsche Post DHL Group’s ambition to achieve net-zero emissions logistics by 2050.

Thomas Mack, global head of airfreight, DHL Global Forwarding, said: “We are sure that creating a more sustainable freight sector can only be achieved collaboratively.

“Therefore, we are constantly looking for other companies to cooperate with and are very happy to announce our newest partnership with IAG Cargo.”

David Shepherd, chief executive at IAG Cargo, added: “At IAG Cargo, we are continuously striving to reduce our impact on the environment by working with colleagues, customers and partners to embed sustainable thinking across the business and become fit for the future.

“IAG was the first European airline group to make the commitment that 10% of flights will be fueled by SAF by 2030 – and this partnership is another step towards that goal.”
