DHL Expands GOGREEN Services with Two New Carbon Reporting Services
PLANTATION, Fla. -- November 15, 2012
DHL, the world’s leading international express shipping provider, announced
today the expansion of its GOGREEN environmental services with two new carbon
reporting services – providing US importers and exporters with transparency of
their carbon emissions. The launch of DHL GOGREEN Carbon Estimate and DHL
GOGREEN Carbon Footprint services meets a growing priority of many businesses
that are looking to act more environmentally responsible.
DHL GOGREEN Carbon Estimate: A forecast service that provides customers with a
single, high-level estimate of their CO[2 ]footprint for their most recent
three month time period based on global average carbon emission factors. This
snapshot allows customers to baseline their carbon footprint for informational
and forecasting purposes.
DHL GOGREEN Carbon Footprint: A measure service that provides detailed
transparency of customers’ actual CO[2 ]footprint emissions at trade lane,
product, mode of transport, account, and shipment level for a calendar year to
support them with baseline carbon reduction target setting decisions. The
CO calculation methodology and processes for reports are verified by an
independent body – the Swiss based Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS).
The CO[2 ]calculation methodology is verified by the Swiss based auditor in
accordance with the principles of ISO 14064 Standard.
“DHL empowers its customers to make environmentally responsible transportation
decisions,” said Ian Clough, CEO of DHL Express U.S. “The DHL GOGREEN
portfolio of services provides customers with an accurate, transparent view of
their carbon footprint, and enables them to offset their CO[2 ]emissions in
projects that support their own sustainability mandates.”
The new GOGREEN reporting services complement the current DHL GOGREEN Carbon
Neutral service, which enables customers to offset CO[2 ]emissions for their
DHL shipments.DHL Express offers its three DHL GOGREEN services in more than
50 countries worldwide, including many markets in Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa
and the Americas. In 2011, Deutsche Post DHL shipped an estimated 1.9 billion
GOGREEN Carbon Neutral shipments worldwide, while offsetting 134,000 tonnes of
CO[2 ]emissions. Since its launch in 2006, more than 270,000 tons of CO[2
]emissions have been offset by GOGREEN carbon neutral shipping and logistics
