As a global logistics leader, we aim to connect people and improve their lives – and we believe protecting our planet for future generations is an integral part of that. We're invested in sustainable logistics solutions for a greener tomorrow.

We play an important role in global trade, and therefore the global economy, but our values drive us to do business sustainably, in a way that reduces our carbon footprint and keeps our greenhouse gas emissions as low as possible. We’re already making green logistics a reality, but our continued commitment to reduce emissions to net-zero by 2050 means we’re one of the foremost eco-friendly logistics companies shaping the future of the industry today.

“We need to reduce carbon emissions by using imaginative solutions available today." - John Pearson, CEO, DHL Express”

For over a decade, we have invested in a Group-wide environmental protection program we call GoGreen. This is to help us reach our bigger goal of Mission 2050: Zero Emissions – our commitment to reduce all our logistics-related emissions to net-zero by the year 2050.

It’s an ambitious target, but one we’re confident we’ll hit – and progress is already underway. Greener, more eco-friendly logistics are currently in operation. Today, many of our customers are already benefiting from GoGreen solutions within their supply chains – from carbon reports that help them understand and reduce their environmental impact, to electric vehicles for their last-mile deliveries.

We’re proud to be setting a new environmentally friendly benchmark for the logistics industry. Here’s what we’ve achieved so far...
