Make a Difference

A more sustainable future is everyone’s responsibility. Join us and thousands of other customers globally who want to make a positive impact on tomorrow. 

DHL's GoGreen Plus products utilize the 'book & claim' methodology focusing on reducing emissions within our value chain through direct or indirect substitution of sustainable fuels. This differs from offsetting, offered in some GoGreen products, which compensates emissions via external climate projects outside of DHL's value chain - and therefore, DHL does not account for these reductions in our own GHG footprint.
