Our path to zero emissions in Germany

Deutsche Post DHL Group has committed to improving carbon efficiency by 50% by 2025. Our ultimate mission is to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050. To achieve these goals, environmental protection programs have been developed across the Group.

We have also launched a new, Germany-wide Sustainability Campaign.

Alongside our GoGreen shipment solutions we offer a range of additional services that actively contribute to climate protection. In this way, provider and customer support climate protection projects to offset carbon emissions.

Carbon-free delivery by Post and Parcel in Germany

Deliveries made in ~50% of our delivery districts across Germany are already carbon-free: with Streetscooters, e-trikes, e-bikes or on foot.

  • We are consistently converting our delivery fleet by introducing more and more electric vehicles.
  • In conurbations and city centers, furthermore, deliveries of merchandise mail and an increasing number of small-format parcels are now delivered by bike or on foot.
  • This means that one in four DHL parcels and two out of three merchandise mail items are delivered carbon-free.

Choosing GoGreen allows you and your company to make an effective contribution to climate protection. With GoGreen, we offset the carbon emissions that arise in transporting your merchandise parcel shipments within Germany and abroad.

We are taking the next step towards climate-neutral shipping this year with our GoGreen Plus pilot. With a selected group of customers we are actively avoiding transport-related carbon emissions in national parcel shipping - a measure known as insetting. 

And with our sustainable shipping materials (linerless labels and ECO-BAGS) climate-friendly shipping has never been easier.

Climate friendly parcel receipt for customers

  • Our DHL recipient services - including preferred drop-off location and Packstation delivery - avoid failed deliveries.
  • Packstations reduce carbon emissions through simultaneous delivery of multiple parcels and pick-up of returns.
  • Digital delivery notifications actively promote paperless processing, doing away with the need for notification cards.
