Following the successful introduction of sea and air freight products, DHL Freight clients may now book the GoGreen Plus service for road transport services. GoGreen Plus is a component of the Deutsche Post DHL Group’s medium-term sustainability vision for 2030, which aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

This is made feasible through carbon insetting, which involves reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. 

GoGreen Plus supports the sub-goal of covering at least 30% of fuel demand with sustainable fuels by 2030 . In order to reduce its emissions in line with the Paris Climate Agreement, the Group will spend €7bn on sustainable fuels and clean technologies by 2030


DHL Freight to launch GoGreen Plus service for road transport

DHL Freight’s technological roadmap outlines climate-friendly methods such as increasing CO2 efficiency through transition technologies and longer-term initiatives such as hydrogen vehicles for trucks. DHL Freight has already established itself as a pioneer of green projects in road transport in recent years. In Sweden, for example, the firm has been using the insetting product Skicka Grönt since 2018. This product has helped to deliver a large decrease in CO2 emissions by switching the fleet to biofuels (bio-LNG/-CNG, HVO) and electric trucks.

“This is an important milestone for our company’s sustainability goals. With the introduction of GoGreen Plus at DHL Freight, Deutsche Post DHL Group can now offer its customers climate-neutral shipping services for all modes of transport. In this way, we are contributing to the goals agreed in the Paris Climate Agreement to limit global warming. I am proud that we are a key driver of the sustainable transformation of our industry. We now offer the GoGreen Plus service for all core products of our company – from Eurapid to Euroconnect to Euroline. Our existing green road transport projects are very popular with our customers and we look forward to extending our GoGreen Plus service to our entire product portfolio,” said Uwe Brinks, CEO of DHL Freight.

Similiar initiatves are planned across Europe.
