DHL Express launches a new GoGreen Plus service for its air cargo product. GoGreen Plus service allows customers to reduce the carbon emissions associated with their cargo using Sustainable Aviation Fuel 1. From June, air cargo customers of DHL globally can choose the GoGreen Plus service for their shipments, with customers being given the chance to tailor the CO2e reduction they want to achieve and the amount of SAF they use. SAF is produced from waste oils and can provide greenhouse gas emission reductions of up to 80 percent over its lifecycle compared with the conventional jet fuel it replaces.

Travis Cobb, EVP Global Network Operations & Aviation, DHL Express, commented: “Our greatest goal is achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Using SAF is currently key to reducing carbon emissions in aviation and our GoGreen Plus service is made possible following our collaborations with bp and Neste to supply SAF to DHL Express hubs around the world.”

Ingrid Raj, SVP, Global Head Aviation Commercial, DHL Express, said: “Insetting through GoGreen Plus allows customers to bring down their Scope 3 emissions, the indirect greenhouse gas emissions that occur in a company's value chain, including downstream transportation and distribution. With the introduction of GoGreen Plus, we empower our air cargo customers to make more sustainable choices and embolden their contribution to reducing carbon emissions.”

DHL Aviation manages 18 own and partner airlines with more than 300 dedicated aircraft fulfilling over 2,400 daily flights to more than 500 airports worldwide. Most of the freight capacity is used for DHL Express’ main product TDI. If any cargo space remains on these flights, DHL Express sells it to customers in the air freight sector. The GoGreen Plus service for air cargo customers will be launched at the Air Cargo Europe Trade Show in Munich. It follows the earlier successful launch of GoGreen Plus for Express courier shipments. The GoGreen Plus service is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group's sustainability goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. It contributes to the interim target of using 30 percent SAF for all air transport by 2030. In line with its Sustainability Roadmap, Deutsche Post DHL Group aims to offer a green alternative for all products and services across all divisions.
