GoGreen –
Green solutions for climate-friendly logistics

We are taking action and making changes – sustainably

More and more companies from a wide range of industries are setting climate protection goals for themselves, goals that are also dependent on support from their suppliers. Our clear goal is therefore to offer a comprehensive portfolio of green products and solutions for logistics. As the world’s leading logistics company, we recognize our responsibility to set a good example in our industry and assume a pioneering role in sustainability: We are reducing the carbon footprint of our activities at the very source. We are convinced that, working together side by side with you our customers, we can make a significant contribution to climate protection.
In the past few years, we at Deutsche Post and DHL have managed to achieve climate-friendly growth and adapt successfully to structural change. In some cases we’ve even been able to lower our carbon footprint despite volume increases. Delivery is carbon free in over 50% of our districts. This share will increase to 70% by 2025. None of our competitors in Europe even come close to the number of carbon-free delivery vehicles and operating equipment we’ve deployed at Deutsche Post and DHL.
To further improve our performance in the future, we are making huge investments in new technologies and processes with the medium-term goal of offering carbon-free mail and parcel service. Over the next several years, we will be getting “greener” along the entire logistics value chain. Our action plan includes alternative transport solutions as well as new building and energy solutions. We will also continue to expand our e-fleet. All of these infrastructure-related measures contribute to a targeted reduction of our carbon emissions and more sustainable core processes.

Climate neutrality – how does that work in shipping?

We achieve carbon-neutral shipments through two services: GoGreen and GoGreen Plus.

With GoGreen, any transport emissions generated are subsequently compensated for through investment in climate protection projects around the globe. This is referred to as offsetting. We implement this offsetting process automatically in Germany for all letter mail items and private customer parcels – at no extra charge. Business customers can opt to have this service added to their parcels and advertising mail.

GoGreen Plus Logo

GoGreen Plus avoids emissions through insetting, in other words additional reduction measures in our logistics networks such as the use of biogas or electric trucks. Starting in 2022, this new service has been piloted in Germany with numerous companies who want to take the next step toward climate neutrality together with us.

EUR 600 million invested in sustainability

Deutsche Post DHL’s sustainability program includes investments totaling EUR 600 million in e-mobility and green infrastructure. We are equipping our production sites with photovoltaics, heat pumps and building automation, and will operate 100 carbon-neutral delivery centers already in 2022 and 280 by 2025. We consistently apply a sustainable construction concept in all our operating sites, deploy climate-friendly equipment in all our mail and parcel centers and already use 95% green electricity.


World’s largest e-fleet

With 20,000 electric delivery vans, 12,600 e-trikes and 6,700 e-bikes, ours is the largest fleet of electric commercial vehicles in the world, and our deliveries are carbon-free in about 50% of our delivery districts. No other logistics company invests as much in e-mobility as we do. This year’s budget alone is around EUR 300 million. We will expand our e-fleet to 38,000 electric delivery vehicles and 14,000 e-trikes by 2025.


Rail transport and 400 new gas-powered trucks

We use a rail transport network across Germany to ship 6% of parcels in a climate-friendly way, equivalent to about 10 million parcels a month. Our new Bahntransport rail service makes it possible for private customers to play an active role in cutting carbon emissions. In road transport, we are deploying alternative fuels and will purchase more than 100 (bio)gas-powered trucks with much lower emissions in 2022. The fleet will include more than 400 of these trucks in the future.
