Your customers have never been more concerned with your environmental practices. Discover the important role DHL’s Sustainable Aviation Fuel initiative is playing in helping enterprises of all sizes improve their sustainability – and how your business can join them.

What is GoGreen Plus?

DHL Express has recently launched GoGreen Plus, the first of its kind dedicated solution to help businesses reduce the carbon emissions associated with their shipments through the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). SAF is a biofuel that is produced from renewable sources such as vegetable oils, animal fats, waste products, and agricultural crops. SAF is specifically designed to be used as a substitute for traditional jet fuel and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared to fossil fuels.  

Adding GoGreen Plus to your shipment is easy!

How to ship GoGreen Plus: You can apply it to your business account on a contractual basis, or when choosing your shipping service through ship with a credit card or at our Service Points.


Why sustainability matters for your business?

Sustainability is one of the most significant trends to impact all industries in recent times. Shoppers are increasingly concerned with the environmental impact of their purchases; from sustainable manufacturing, packaging and shipping. At DHL Express, we take green logistics seriously and are giving our customers of all sizes the ability to integrate sustainable shipping. That's why we launched our landmark program - GoGreen Plus - the first of any global carrier, to allow customers to use Sustainable Aviation Fuel for their deliveries and meet the growing demand for sustainable solutions and products.

What is the benefit of GoGreen Plus?

GoGreen Plus gives you the chance to transform your environmental impact by "insetting" — reducing the carbon emissions associated with your shipping and logistics by investing in the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) within our network. Insetting efforts are the only way to reduce or eliminate the carbon output at the source. 

This is in contrast to “offsetting” – where businesses “neutralize” their emissions through environmental programs like reforestation and habitat restoration projects. Insetting is a more direct and meaningful way to measure progress in reducing emissions. 

Insetting is more effective than relying solely on carbon offsetting, as offsetting alone does not effectively address the root cause, and its uptake.
