DHL and the World Economic Forum (WEF) announced that DHL's new carbon neutral shipping service GOGREEN will help the World Economic Forum to realize its Carbon Neutral promise for Davos. DHL GOGREEN is a value-added service that offsets the CO2 emissions caused by the transportation with carbon dioxide reduction projects ranging from alternative vehicle technologies to renewable fuels.

The service was launched given the urgency of the fight against climate change, which is a key subject of the Forum´s crucial and prestigious Annual Meeting that brings together world leaders, shaping global, regional and industry agendas.

All participants at the Annual Meeting in Davos will be provided with the opportunity to ship event materials without causing CO2 emissions by using GOGREEN. Additionally, two DHL Express Switzerland carbon-neutral biogas-powered vehicles will be on hand, providing prompt pickup and delivery services.

“Environmental responsibility is an integral part of living up to our corporate values and we see an increasing number of our global business customers seeking ways to reduce their environmental impact. With DHL GOGREEN, we offer an international solution for European customers, making carbon-neutral shipping easy” says Ad Ebus, CEO DHL Express Europe.

For sending carbon-neutral shipments, the customer only has to choose the service when ordering international express shipments; DHL takes care of the rest. The carbon reduction projects portfolio is handled through a certified corporate carbon management program, facilitating the carbon exchange between business units and projects. To ensure accountability and transparency, the program is annually verified by the external certifying body, the Swiss based SGS.

“We are delighted to be using DHL's GOGREEN service for our Annual Meeting. With climate change on the top of the World Economic Forum´s agenda and coupled with the effort to make our Annual Meeting carbon neutral with the Davos Climate Alliance, DHL's GOGREEN service is an obvious choice for us”, says André Schneider, Managing Director and COO of the World Economic Forum.
