During its Era of Sustainable Logistics Global Summit, Deutsche Post DHL Group shared a number of sustainability achievements and introduced its new GoGreen Dashboard – built to streamline the customer-facing reporting process.
The new emissions reporting solution for Deutsche Post DHL Group’s large cross-divisional customers, aims to provide transparency according to recognised industry standards like the GLEC Framework or the recently published ISO 14083. The solution enables customers to quickly and easily view carbon emissions for all of the group’s business units through a single customisable platform – completely free of charge.
DHL said this interface eliminates the need to access multiple systems and reports, making the reporting process more efficient and streamlined, which in turn leads to better informed decision-making. The tool will first be rolled out to the first top 100 cross-divisional customers with the intent to expand the scope later this year.
“As we face the challenges of the climate emergency, it is clear that sustainability must be at the forefront of our efforts. By prioritising cleaner, greener logistics and working together, I truly believe that we can drive meaningful progress towards achieving sustainable supply chains, “said Katja Busch, chief commercial officer at DHL and head of Customer Solutions and Innovation (CSI).
In March 2017, Deutsche Post DHL Group pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, the group stressed that it has already accomplished significant milestones in their pursuit of that goal. It has introduced over 30,000 e-vehicles in its delivery fleet worldwide, and ordered up to 12 fully electric cargo planes.
Last year, the group has also successfully secured over 830 million litres of SAF until 2026. But it is not only in transport that Deutsche Post DHL Group is adopting a sustainable approach. With DHL Supply Chain being the Group’s frontrunner in this area, more than half of their facilities (52.1%) are carbon neutral, including 76 new buildings designed and built according to carbon-neutral guidelines. And likewise, for the Group’s customers, sustainable alternatives, the GoGreen Plus services, are offered for all core products and are already used by major customers to enable sustainable supply chains today and with many other customers in discussion.
“Since the announcement of our sustainability roadmap in March 2021, we have already made significant progress in our journey towards a more sustainable future – with the deployment of electric vehicles, the purchase of SAF, the transformation and construction of carbon-neutral buildings, and the expansion of new green services,” added Yin Zou, executive vice president of corporate development at Deutsche Post DHL Group.
“While we are proud of the rapid progress we’ve made, we remain dedicated to exploring new technologies and partnerships to further create momentum to drive the green agenda forward.”
