We are doing absolutely everything we can to reduce our CO2 emissions. We call that maximum reduction. As a large organization, we can really make a big difference. This is why we’re making our entire logistical process sustainable. Green sorting centers, electric delivery vans, and smart delivery routes: all these contribute to a better future.
Putting emissions into perspective
In 2022, a parcel delivery by DHL produced on average around 340 g in CO2 emissions. In 2021, the amount was 10 g higher – our sustainability measures are therefore having an impact. To put this into context: your cup of coffee this morning produced a similar amount of carbon as a delivery by DHL. Thinking of buying a new pair of jeans – these produce ten times more emissions: a surprising 32 kg.
Green en route
Taking on our responsibilities is helping bring about real change. Our ultimate goal is fossil-free logistics. To get there, we’re taking big but also smaller steps: Every little bit helps. That’s why we’re making every part of our logistical process sustainable: from the moment your order is registered with us to the point when our courier rings your doorbell. Would you like to know exactly which route your order took?
