DHL provides carbon neutral shipping for World Economic Forum
DHL and the World Economic Forum (WEF) have announced that DHL's new carbon neutral shipping service GOGREEN will help the World Economic Forum to realise its Carbon Neutral promise for Davos. DHL GOGREEN is a value-added service that offsets the CO 2 emissions caused by the transportation with carbon dioxide reduction projects ranging from alternative vehicle technologies to renewable fuels.
All participants at the Annual Meeting in Davos will be provided with the opportunity to ship event materials without causing CO 2 emissions by using GOGREEN. Additionally, two DHL Express Switzerland carbon-neutral biogas-powered vehicles will be on hand.
"Environmental responsibility is an integral part of living up to our corporate values and we see an increasing number of our global business customers seeking ways to reduce their environmental impact. With DHL GOGREEN, we offer an international solution for European customers, making carbon-neutral shipping easy" says Ad Ebus, CEO DHL Express Europe.
The carbon reduction projects portfolio is handled through a certified corporate carbon management program, facilitating the carbon exchange between business units and projects. To ensure accountability and transparency, the program is annually verified by the external certifying body, the Swiss based SGS.
