SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions has signed up for DHL’s GoGreen Plus service to reduce carbon emissions

DHL Express, the world’s leading international express service provider and SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions Co., Ltd. have signed a long-term agreement for GoGreen Plus, an international shipping service that reduces (‘inset’) the carbon emissions through the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

With the signing of this agreement, SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions, a leading manufacturer of semiconductor equipment will reduce 100% of the CO2 emissions associated with their use of international express shipment which they use for shipping of small parts including maintenance parts.

Tony Khan, President and Representative Director of DHL Express Japan said, “For many of our Japanese customers, many of their overseas business partners and customers expect our customers to do more to combat climate change. We are delighted that our GoGreen Plus service will be fully leveraged by SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions to bring down their Scope 3 emissions.”

Masato Goto, Representative Director and President of SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions Co., Ltd. Said, “We are actively working to combat climate change in our supply chain with the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 in order to contribute to a more sustainable society. The contract with DHL as an important milestone in our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, especially since nearly 80% of our total sales are from our clients overseas.”

The SCREEN Group has long been committed to reducing CO2 emissions through its business operations in accordance with the company’s goal of achieving a carbon-neutral society by 2050. In January this year, SCREEN received renewed approval from the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) on its updated targets for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by FY2030. SCREEN has now received approval for new targets consistent with the level required to keep the global temperature rise to 1.5ºC.  Adopting GoGreen Plus will further help the company reduce the emissions of Category 9, Transportation and Delivery, in its Scope 3.

Under Mission 2050, which aims to achieve net-zero logistics-related emissions by 2050, DHL Express has been working towards electrifying its delivery vehicles worldwide, using SAF for air transportation, and promoting carbon neutrality in its facilities. With GoGreen Plus, customers can choose the amount of SAF according to their needs, including the extent of carbon reduction, the availability of certificates and reporting tools.  Currently, about 1,500 companies in Japan have adopted the GoGreen Plus.
