DHL launches carbon neutral envelope
Delivery giant DHL Express has added recyclable DHL Express envelopes to their carbon neutral shipping efforts, aiming to reduce the environmental impact of their U.S. shipping customers.
DHL will calculate the CO2 emissions associated with the handling and transport of each DHL Express envelope, and offset the carbon impact of these emissions through investments in recognized climate protection projects, according to the company.
The calculation and offsetting process for the DHL GOGREEN environmental program will be verified annually based on the ISO14064 standard by an independent audit company.
"As we are increasingly being challenged by our customers to help them build a green supply chain for their global operations," said Ian Clough, CEO of DHL Express U.S. "We are confident the enhanced DHL Express Envelope GOGREEN service will deliver one more answer to that challenge."
DHL Express is a division of Deutsche Post DHL, the world's largest logistics group.
