Green Logistics. Because the Future Can't Wait.


Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our generation.

Increasingly authorities and consumers expect business to calculate, account for and reduce their emissions. Carbon accounting is a new science and there is no single way of doing it. This can make calculating your carbon footprint rather complicated.

Do you know where you stand?
Reporting of greenhouse gas emissions is the first step to greening your logistics. We provide an easy to understand Carbon Report that gives full transparency of the emissions generated from your air and ocean freight within the DHL network.

Our emissions calculation follows transparent and public standards that ensure the greatest level of confidence in the figures generated. The Carbon Report can be prepared on an agreed monthly, quarterly or yearly basis, dependant on yours and your customers' needs.

The calculation follows the requirements of the "Greenhouse Gas Protocol Product Lifecycle Accounting and Reporting Standard" and the "EN 16258 Methodology for calculation and declaration of energy consumption and GHG emissions of transport services". Thus the Carbon Reports follow the latest available relevant product standards. 

No matter how big (or small) your company, DHL's GoGreen program is exactly the right size.
How to offset unavoidable GHG emissions

In addition to the carbon reports we will also show you how to offset the amount of your greenhouse gas emissions by investing in recognized climate protection projects. Each year we can issue a certificate that shows the accrued greenhouse gas emissions of your business versus the neutralization through your offsetting. This certificate can be used for internal or public purpose which is certified by a third-party, e.g. SGS. With GOGREEN, you get two for one: The best and greenest logistics service from a single source. It doesn't get any simpler than this.

Please note that emissions offsetting is only available in combination with the GoGreen carbon report.

No matter how big (or small) your company, DHL’s GoGreen program is exactly the right size.
Take it to the next step

If you require more advanced insight to demonstrate the greenhouse gas emissions throughout your whole supply chain we can offer you our Carbon Dashboard. The Carbon Dashboard is a powerful web based tool that can map the emissions generated while in DHL’s air and ocean freight network as well as third-party networks, down to shipment level.

It provides you with the flexibility of amending different views of the variety of carbon reports that are most relevant to you to measure emission improvements over time.

In order to optimize your supply chain and to make beneficial logistics decisions, this web based tool gives you the ability to simulate and assess the carbon footprint. You can run “what-if” scenarios in using for example different transportation modes, or it helps you to identify how to use container capacity more efficiently.

No matter how big (or small) your company, DHL’s GoGreen program is exactly the right size.
