DHL Customers Can Ship ‘Green’ with New Carbon Neutral Envelope
Carbon neutral GOGREEN shipping is now the standard for all Express envelopes, aiming to offset carbon emissions through investment in climate protection projects.
DHL Express has expanded its GOGREEN environmental services by introducing GOGREEN carbon neutral shipping to the already recyclable DHL Express Envelope, allowing U.S. customers to further reduce the environmental impact of their shipping activities.
DHL will calculate the CO2 emissions associated with the handling and transport of every individual DHL Express Envelope, and then offset the carbon impact of these emissions through investments in recognized climate protection projects. The calculation and offsetting process for GOGREEN will be verified annually based on the ISO14064 standard, by Société Générale de Surveillance, an independent audit company. The enhanced service is available from the U.S. to more than 220 countries and territories worldwide.
“Making the DHL Express Envelope carbon-neutral is one more way to help businesses make smart, environmentally responsible transportation decisions,” said Ian Clough, CEO of DHL Express U.S. “As we are increasingly being challenged by our customers to help them build a green supply chain for their global operations, we are confident the enhanced DHL Express Envelope GOGREEN service will deliver one more answer to that challenge.”
The DHL GoGreen program in the U.S. helps minimize the environmental impact of our business operations through measures that include recyclable packaging, energy efficient facilities, pickup and delivery vehicles fueled by clean and economical propane autogas, as well as carbon neutral shipping and carbon reporting services.
