DHL is hosting its first Era of Sustainable Logistics Global Summit in Valencia, Spain on April 25-27, giving over 1,000 decision makers, stakeholders and experts the opportunity to exchange ideas and insights and co-create the future of global supply chains together.
The summit, which runs until tomorrow (April 27) also provides Deutsche Post DHL Group with a forum to update stakeholders on the progress of its sustainability roadmap, with the key topics of electrification, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), carbon-neutral buildings and alternative green services.
“As we face the challenges of the climate emergency, it is clear that sustainability must be at the forefront of our efforts,” said Katja Busch, chief commercial officer at DHL and head of customer solutions and innovation (CSI). “By prioritizing cleaner, greener logistics and working together, I truly believe that we can drive meaningful progress toward achieving sustainable supply chains.
“The DHL Era of Sustainable Logistics Global Summit 2023 is an opportunity for community building, and we are excited to be the ones to facilitate this summit. Collaboration is a must to achieve progress. We owe it to future generations to take bold action and make commitments to protect our planet now.”
With the launch of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s 2050 Mission in March 2021 – which is centered around the commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 – the group has already reached significant milestones, including the introduction of over 30,000 e-vehicles in its delivery fleet worldwide, and an order for up to 12 fully electric cargo airplanes. Last year, the group also successfully secured over 830 million liters of SAF until 2026.
The group is also empowering customers to reduce their carbon footprint and introduced the new DHL GoGreen Dashboard at the summit. This seamless emissions-reporting solution for Deutsche Post DHL Group’s large cross-divisional customers provides transparency according to recognized industry standards like the GLEC Framework and the recently published ISO 14083.
The dashboard enables customers to quickly and easily view carbon emissions for all of the group’s business units through a single customizable platform – completely free of charge. This interface eliminates the need to access multiple systems and reports, making the reporting process more efficient and streamlined, which leads to better-informed decision making.
The tool will be rolled out to the first top-100 cross-divisional customers with a plan to expand the scope later this year.
