DP DHL’s GoGreen Climate Protection program is a lighthouse example in the logistics industry, with its target to improve our CO2 emissions and carbon efficiency. Our approach includes optimizing our air and vehicle fleet, improving energy efficiency, implementing innovative technologies, developing “green” products, encouraging employees to use resources wisely, and working with customers and suppliers to do the same. Our employees play a crucial role in efforts to transform the business and make it as “green” as possible.
Commemorated annually on 5 June since its inception in 1972, World Environment Day (WED) seeks to be the most widely celebrated global day for positive, environmental action. This year, the theme for WED is “Many Species. One Planet. One Future.”
In the Week of 1 June 2010, we would like all employees across APEEMEA to join us in these activities:
1. Green Travel Week: Bike or Walk to Work, Car Pool to Work, Take Public Transport to Work
2. Wear Something Green to the Office on 4 June, Friday – as a symbolic demonstration of commitment to GoGreen
You can do more! Organize a neighborhood clean-up, stop using plastic bags and get your community to do the same, plant a tree or organize a collective tree planting effort, or start a recycling drive or any other initiative that promotes GoGreen or create environmental awareness . . . the possibilities are endless. More importantly, we encourage you to continue these activities beyond one day and do it for the whole month of June.
For every employee that participates in green initiatives for WED in June, the Corporate GoGreen team will invest in 1 square meter of land along the Southern Coast of Brazil, with the aim of protecting the native plants that are being displaced along the coast.
From KH OFR HOD : To a green thought in a green shade.
In response to WED, I’m actively participate in this wonderful event, started from 01 Jun 2010 to 04 Jun 2010 I’m cycling to work and I’m cycling to school, I share what I learnt about WED & GoGreen to every people I know, for this is a huge portion of global contribution as well as a part of life
Knowing is not enough; We must Apply! Willing is not enough; We must Do!
It is obvious that the best qualities in man must atrophy in a standing-room-only environment.
GoGreen is very inspiration project not for me but globally. I do what I could to make a small contribution and I’ve been truly inspired for being exactly who I am to do what I can to make our wonderful world different. I’ve been participating as much as many activities mean to protect environment and keep this clean world smiled all the time. If you really through GoGreen. I wish everyone would be well aware of this.
If one person forgets to switch off the light – it’s not the end of the world. However when thousands of employees agree to implement climate-protection measures, the result will be tremendously positive.
If one customer requests a carbon-neutral transport – it’s not going to save the planet. However, when thousands of customers ask for eco-friendly services, it makes a big difference.
