Deutsche Post DHL Group, the world’s largest mail and logistics company, will reduce all logistics-related emissions to net zero by the year 2050.
In pursuit of this ambitious target, DPDHL Group hopes to contribute meaningfully to achieving the goal of limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius established at the 2015 Paris climate conference.
Four interim milestones are already to be achieved by 2025 as part of the Group’s environmental protection program GoGreen:
• Globally, Deutsche Post DHL Group will increase the carbon efficiency of its own activities and those of its transport subcontractors by 50% compared to the 2007 baseline.
• At the local level, the Group aims to improve the lives of people right where they live and work using clean transport solutions.
DPDHL Group will operate 70% of its own first and last mile services with clean pick-up and delivery solutions e.g. by bike and electric vehicle.
• More than 50% of sales will incorporate Green Solutions, making customers’ supply chains greener.
• The Group will certify 80% of its employees as GoGreen specialists, and actively involve them in its climate protection activities.
The company also plans to join with partners to plant one million trees every year.
The Group’s climate protection measures support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 11 (“Sustainable Cities and Communities”) and Goal 13 (“Climate Action”).
