DHL Express launches service offering customers use of sustainable air fuel

DHL Express has today [16 Feb] launched GoGreen Plus, a new service offering customers the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) when transporting their shipments by air.

GoGreen Plus will initially be introduced in the UK, to be shortly followed by Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates.

The service will allow DHL Express customers to make decisions on the amount of SAF they want to use based on the CO₂e reduction they want to achieve. DHL Express says that GoGreen Plus is “designed to be fully flexible” as it can be selected for individual shipments.

SAF uses sustainable feedstocks like cooking oil and waste materials, making it more sustainable than traditional fossil-based jet fuel. DHL recently partnered with bp and Neste; both companies will be supplying SAF to DHL Express hubs globally to support the new service.

Chief Executive of DHL Express John Pearson said: “We know our customers are committed to reducing their environmental impact so it’s important we’re giving them the means to do so. I’m delighted that our investment in SAF can now be fully leveraged by customers to enable them to bring down the emissions of their shipments.”

He continued: “SAF is currently the primary route to reducing carbon emissions in aviation, so this is the most effective way to help our customers make their own supply chains more sustainable.”

Deutsche Post DHL Group, to which DHL Express belongs, has set a goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050 and a shorter-term target of using 30% SAF for all air transport by 2030.
