Offsetting – climate protection to your doorstep

One key objective of our Logistics and Packaging Guideline is to reduce CO₂ emissions. However, since emissions cannot be completely avoided when deliv­ering products to our customers, we make an effort to compensate for them.

Offsetting CO₂ emissions: climate protection projects

In our quest to fulfil customer wishes promptly and in an eco-friendly way, we have – since 2012 – sent all our letters and parcels to customers exclu­sively using Deutsche Post DHL's ‘GoGreen’ programme. By doing so, we support the funding of globally accredited, ‘Gold Standard’-certified climate protection projects in devel­oping and emerging countries, and offset the carbon dioxide emissions generated by shipping.
