Our goal for zero emissions by 2050 is at the centre of how we operate as a business. DHL Express has been exploring many ways of delivering in city centres using alternative fuels. With the Introduction of zero emission vehicles (2 Cycle Cargo’s, 2 Cargo Bikes & 1 Electric Van) at our Dublin City Centre HUB we are another step closer to our goal.
All new DHL Express Service Centres are built to the highest required BREEAM and EPC environmental standards. This includes using green electricity, LED daylight-controlled lighting and emission-free air conditioning. Here in Ireland, that includes are Dublin Hub as well as our state of the art facility that opened in Shannon, Co Clare in 2018 and our new facility opening in Blarney, Co Cork in 2022.
By 2025 we are striving to achieve 70% zero-emission first and last mile services through clean pick-up and delivery solutions. Since 2017, we have launched 27,000 bicycles, cargo bikes and cubicycles worldwide to reduce and avoid the emissions of greenhouse gasses and local air pollutants. Our Dublin City centre depot operates fully green, with 2 Cycle Cargo’s, 2 Cargo Bikes & 1 Electric Van.
DHL expects further growth in cross-border e-commerce trade and, as a result, increased demand for express logistics services and expertise in intercontinental deliveries. DHL Express’ fleet renewal strategy replaces older aircraft with more fuel-efficient modern alternatives, with emissions efficiency improvements of up to 18%.
This strategy hopes to simultaneously enhance our proven ability to meet growing demand, improve our environmental footprint and deliver best quality service to our customers.
