DHL introduces new reporting standards for GoGreen services

Deutsche Post DHL demonstrated its increased commitment to environmentally accountable shipping by announcing more in depth reporting of its GoGreen programme earlier this month.

While the German logistics giant previously measured the amount of CO2 produced by its transport services, it will now capture and publish data on other relevant greenhouse gases including methane and nitrous oxide. DHL has stated this will enable greater transparency for customers wishing to ensure that their shipping has the lowest possible impact on the environment.

As of this year, a "climate neutral" service" is available for all DHL customers whereby the carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions precipitated by their shipping are offset through recognised climate protection projects.

DHL also provide a "Green Optimization" service which involves consultation about the entire supply chain of business customers.
