Aug 1, 2011 10:37 AM
Users can choose from a variety of certified reports to better understand the main drivers of carbon emissions from the various transport modes involved including pick-up and delivery emissions in their supply chain. The service helps account for and manage carbon emissions, including third-party emissions, with detailed and reliable carbon dioxide (CO2) mapping available instantly from a web-based hub.
“Up to 50% of the carbon footprint of a product comes from the supply chain,” said Kathrin Brost, vice-president, DHL Global Forwarding, Freight Green Strategy. “DHL Global Forwarding, Freight now offers its customers a best-in-class tool to gain transparency on the carbon efficiency within their supply chain. In the future, carbon will become a global currency, and DHL makes it easy for companies to integrate it in their balance sheet. The new Carbon Dashboard helps our customer identify their impact in detail.”
The Carbon Dashboard ensures a standard calculation approach and treats CO2 as an integrated business parameter, putting it into relation with other supply chain parameters such as volumes shipped, product density, and trade lane efficiency. It also enables users to dry-run various carbon reduction scenarios using real data and explore the effectiveness of different optimization levers.
Deutsche Post DHL offers a full range of GOGREEN products and services across all its business units—from carbon reporting and consulting to CO2 reduction options, carbon-offsetting, and carbon-neutral shipping services. In 2010, the company offset some 82,000 tons of carbon emissions for customers and shipped more than 1.7 billion CO2-neutral GOGREEN items.
