At DHL, corporate responsibility is a core element of our strategy. Acting responsibly as a company means we treat our employees, the environment and the interests of society that have been entrusted to us in a manner that is respectful and sustainable. As a global logistics provider, we move goods and information around the world making us an important driver in the creation of global networks. The primary focus of our environmental protection program, GOGREEN, is to minimize our business operations’ greatest impact on the environment – CO2 emissions.
We have purchased credits that offset CO2 emissions by investing in projects to replace carbon-intensive technologies with renewable power such as wind, biomass, solar and geothermal energy. We have also developed sustainable service solutions for your business to partner with us in climate protection. Today, U.S. customers shipping with recyclable DHL Express Envelopes now further reduce the environmental impact of their shipping activities. DHL is calculating the CO2 emissions associated with the handling and transport of every individual DHL Express Envelope. Then offsetting the carbon impact of these emissions through investments in recognized climate protection projects. The calculation and offsetting process for GOGREEN is verified annually based on the ISO14064 standard, by Société Générale de Surveillance, an independent audit company.

With the aid of the Certified Emissions Reduction (CER), people are now more knowledgeable and capable to grow their own communities. Due to the establishment of these certified programs, additional education was needed and provided. These projects could not have been realized without the CER credits earned by our customers though the DHL GOGREEN Climate Neutral service.
