15.02.2016 - Deutsche Post DHL Group launches new environmental protection product in the Germany\'s Ruhr region

For the first time, Deutsche Post DHL Group is working with selected business customers in Germany's Ruhr region to pilot a concept which reinvests earnings from its eco-friendly GOGREEN products and services directly into local environmental projects. As part of the pilot, the Group will increase investment in electric delivery vehicles in the region as customers in Duisburg and Essen increase their use of GOGREEN to ship their post and parcel items.
The goal of the initiative is to reduce local emissions and noise pollution, while driving continuous progress toward the Group's environmental protection targets. Up until now, carbon emissions resulting from the transport of GOGREEN items have been offset through climate protection projects in developing countries. With this GoGreen Regional pilot project, the Group is now expanding its portfolio of climate-friendly shipping services to include a local component. At the same time, it gives business customers the chance to engage directly in environmental protection in the region. In this way, these customers can join in the effort to put sustainable mobility technologies out "on the street" and, at the same time, do their part to help electric mobility break through to economic viability.
