DHL Express launches GoGreen Plus option for its air cargo product

DHL Aviation, the in-house airline of DHL Express, is launching a new optional GoGreen Plus service for its air cargo product.

The new GoGreen Plus service allows customers to reduce (‘inset’) the carbon emissions associated with their cargo using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

From June, air cargo customers of DHL globally can choose the GoGreen Plus service for their shipments, with customers being given the chance to tailor the CO2e reduction they want to achieve and the amount of SAF they use.

SAF is produced from waste oils and can provide greenhouse gas emission reductions of up to 80 percent over its lifecycle compared with the conventional jet fuel it replaces. 

Travis Cobb, EVP Global Network Operations & Aviation, DHL Express, says: “Our greatest goal is achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

“Using SAF is currently key to reducing carbon emissions in aviation and our GoGreen Plus service is made possible following our collaborations with bp and Neste to supply SAF to DHL Express hubs around the world.”

Ingrid Raj, SVP, Global Head Aviation Commercial, DHL Express, added: “Insetting through GoGreen Plus allows customers to bring down their Scope 3 emissions, the indirect greenhouse gas emissions that occur in a company’s value chain, including downstream transportation and distribution.

“With the introduction of GoGreen Plus, we empower our air cargo customers to make more sustainable choices and embolden their contribution to reducing carbon emissions.”
