For ten years, DHL has been promoting all private customer packages climate-friendly as a so-called. “Gogreen broadcasts”.

Even for private customers, the letter shipment is climate-friendly.

At around 6.5 billion letters, which in the Briefkommunikation business unit alone, would be a compensation of more than 300.000 tonnes correspond to CO2 emissions. For national commercials and press products, the separately to be assigned “Gogrreen shipping option” is still available.

We are already concerned with the farest fleet of electric transporters, electrically operated loading wheels and bicycles for the climate-friendly letter and parcel delivery of the industry. And from our package customers we get big encouragement that we have already carried climate-friendly all private customer packages for many years. Now we also enlarge the product side in the letter sector and make the entire letter transport green. Thus, we also help our business customers to make their letter correspondence with their end customers more environmentally friendly.”- Ole Nordhoff, Head of Marketing German Post
