Environmental policy GoGreen sets out the DHL Parcel Poland and the whole DP DHL group
ZERO EMISSIONS BY 2050
By 2050, we want to reduce emissions from logistics operations to zero.
Plan for 2025
In order to achieve our great climate goal, by 2025 we want to achieve several ambitious milestones in Poland and other countries:
- Increase our carbon efficiency by 50% compared to 2007 levels. This new target is based on the approach taken by the Science Based Targets Initiative.
- Reduce local air pollution by 70% using "clean" means of delivery, such as bicycles and electric cars.
- Achieve a 50% rate of use of eco-solutions in sales transactions. In this way, we want to ensure that the supply chain to customers is eco-friendly.
- Train 80% of your employees as specialists of the GoGreen. As a result, we will continuously raise workers' awareness and involve them in environmental and climate activities. Our activities also include the protection of forests - every year we plant a million trees.
We are responsible by nature, and thanks to GoGreen protect the environment and climate.
As part GoGreen, we carry out projects in Poland and other countries, the results of which we measure on the basis of CO2 emissions:
- reducing emissions
- more fuel-efficient use
- use of alternative energy sources

As part of GoGreen, DHL Parcel Poland chooses environmentally friendly solutions wherever possible. We have a real impact on reducing the negative effects of energy production on the environment. That's why we invest in the development of organizations with the intention of changing our environment for the better. Our goals - environmental protection and business success - go hand in hand!
We are constantly modernizing our own car park and working with carriers with modern vehicles with low emissions. Our modern fleet of vehicles directly affects the efficiency of logistics processes and the quality of service.
These measures result in shorter mileage and lower CO2 emissions.
We conduct advanced tests of electric cars, which will eventually form our courier fleet.
We successfully use electric bicycles, which facilitate the work of couriers in places inaccessible to cars.

On the territory of our headquarters in Warsaw there are 5 hives and almost 250,000 bees. Urban apiaries protect bees, reduce air pollution and help the surrounding greenery. Assistance to bees is particularly important from the perspective of our Mission 2050 strategy: Zero Emissions!".
W Poland is constantly declining bees - with every second their number decreases by more than 100 individuals. On the work (pollination) of these exceptional insects depends on the production of almost 3/4 of the world's food.
In 2017, together with the Gaja club, we planted 250 pines in the Bogatki Forest District. In 2019, we will plant another 500. Planting trees contributes to reducing carbon emissions. It is also a great form of integration of employees and their environmental education.
