ZERO EMISSIONS BY 2050

Group-wide Environmental Protection Program GoGreen Defines New Global Target

Sustainability has long since become one of the most important issues of our time. Our contribution to greater sustainability around the world is green logistics. To realise a more sustainable future we think it’s important to think big. Our new climate protection target is to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by the year 2050.

To help realise this vision of zero emission logistics, we have established a number of ambitious interim goals across the main action areas of our sustainability strategy.
 

By the year 2025, we want to:

  • Increase our carbon efficiency by 50% compared to 2007 levels. This new target is based on the approach taken by the Science Based Targets Initiative.
  • Aiming to improve the lives of people right where they live and work, using clean pick-up and delivery solutions for 70% of our first and last mile services, such as bicycles and electric vehicles.
  • Have more than 50% of our sales incorporate Green Solutions. In this way we also make our customers’ supply chains greener.
  • Certify 80% of our employees as GoGreen specialists and get them involved in our environmental and climate protection activities. This includes joining partners to plant one million trees every year to protect our forests.

 

Mission 2050: Zero Emissions

After achieving a significant improvement in our carbon efficiency in recent years, we are once again setting the bar high for our industry: We intend to reduce all transport-related emissions to zero by 2050.
