Green Logistics Solutions

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our generation. Increasingly authorities and consumers expect business to calculate, account for and reduce their emissions.

Reporting of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) is the first step to greening your logistics.

DHL provides two services - a Carbon Report - and an advanced Online Carbon dashboard.

Carbon Report

  • Maps emissions generated from your transportation within the DHL network
  • Can be prepared on monthly, quarterly or yearly basis
  • Calculation adheres to 'Greenhouse Gas Protocol Product Lifecycle Accounting and Reporting Standard'
  • Calculation adheres to EN 16258 'Methodology for calculation and declaration of energy consumption and GHG emissions of transport services'

Online Carbon Dashboard

Has all the benefits of the Carbon Report, plus:

  • Maps emissions from your entire transportation supply chain – including third part networks
  • Maps emissions to individual shipment level
  • Flexible views on different carbon reports – enables simple measurement of emission improvements
  • Ability to simulate and assess carbon footprint and efficiency
  • Assists in supply chain optimisation and strategic decision making

Within the supply chain there are many ways to reduce emissions.

  • We are experts in eco-efficient logistics processes
  • We work together with you to create tailored solutions
  • We aim to improve efficiency measures and minimise your logistics related environmental impacts
Particular areas of opportunity include:

  • Fuel and vehicle management
