Following yesterday’s presentation of DHL’s Corporate Responsibility Report 2011, the world’s leading parcel delivery company confirmed plans to improve its CO2 efficiency amongst all DHL parcel services and its partners by another 30 percent until 2020.

Last year Deutsche Post DHL transported approximately 1.86 billion shipments via “green” parcel services including letters, packages and express parcels. Frank Appel, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Post DHL confirmed: 
“One of our central tasks as a globally operating, stock-market-listed company’s environmental balance between economic success on the one hand and social objectives on the other hand.”
Indeed, the express courier deployed its own employees in order to help with the recovery of countries affected by natural disasters such as New Zealand and El Salvator. A further 60,000 employees from 120 countries participated in the “Global Volunteer Day” last September dedicating their time to social and environmental initiatives.
