DHL Express, in collaboration with World Energy, a prominent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) producer and provider of low-carbon solutions, has established a far-reaching and enduring partnership with the aim of expediting the reduction of carbon emissions in aviation logistics.

This collaboration involves the procurement of approximately 668 million litres of SAF through the use of sustainable aviation fuel certificates (SAFc). Remarkably, this seven-year contract, set to endure until 2030, ranks as one of the most extensive and enduring SAFc agreements within the aviation industry to date.

Anticipated to bring about a substantial decline of approximately 1.7 million tonnes in carbon dioxide emissions over the aviation fuel lifecycle, this achievement is tantamount to DHL Express operating carbon neutrally for an entire year while handling roughly 77,000 annual aircraft movements in the Americas.

This milestone agreement underscores DHL Group's ambitious Sustainability Roadmap, which encompasses the goal of reducing the company's annual greenhouse gas emissions to below 29 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent by 2030, encompassing scopes 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

CEO of DHL Express, John Pearson, articulated the company's unwavering commitment to pioneering sustainability within the aviation logistics sector.

He stated, "DHL Express is firmly dedicated to pioneering a sustainable future in aviation logistics. By partnering with World Energy and confirming this milestone agreement, we are taking another concrete leap towards minimising our carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future. We want to inspire more suppliers to accelerate industry-wide production and adoption of SAF.”

Gene Gebolys, the CEO of World Energy, expressed his honour in joining forces with DHL on this journey to decarbonise aviation. He emphasised the necessity for commitment throughout the entire value chain to address hard-to-abate sectors and lauded partnerships like the one forged with DHL as essential for enabling companies to achieve their ambitious climate goals.
