We spoke to R S Subramanian, Country Manager, DHL Express India and a member of the DHL Asia Pacific (excluding China) Management Board, about their ambitious goal. Deutsche Post DHL Group announced that it will reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by the year 2050. In pursuit of this ambitious new target, the Group hopes to contribute meaningfully to achieving the goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C established at the 2015 Paris climate conference (COP 21), as well as to the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
“The transportation sector is responsible for some 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions, in which the logistics industry is a contributor too. It is for this reason that we want to reduce our logistics-related emissions to net zero by the year 2050. With this ambitious goal, we are leading the way towards a green, sustainable future for logistics,” he said.
