BONN: DHL Supply Chain is introducing a green transport policy to provide its stakeholder guidance on the most sustainable power alternative based on availability, infrastructure and cost-per-market.
Over the next three years the DHL division will invest €200 million to convert 2,000 of its vehicles from diesel to hydrotreated vegetable oil, biogas, electric or hydrogen power.
The goal is to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 300,000 tonnes a year in 17 countries with the highest company emissions footprint.
"These countries collectively account for 94 percent of the emissions from our own fleet. Our ambitious target is to have a 30 percent share of sustainable drives and fuels across our own fleet by the end of 2026,” said division CEO Oscar de Bok. “By extending an invitation to our customers to join us on this transformative journey and to actively support green road transportation, we provide them with a powerful tool to make their supply chains greener," he added.
