DHL Global Will Purchase SAF

DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, will use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for its deliveries. 

The company signed a contract to purchase 11.5 million liters of SAF Scope 3 transport emissions reductions in 2023 from IAG Cargo.

The SAF, certified by International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC), and produced from used cooking oil and food waste, generates at least 80% lower lifecycle emissions than conventional jet fuel.

With this partnership, DHL advances toward more sustainable air freight and is aligned with the Deutsche Post DHL Group's goals to achieve net-zero emissions logistics by 2050.

DHL uses only sustainably produced SAF made from waste sources, such as food waste or used cooking oil.

“We are sure that creating a more sustainable freight sector can only be achieved collaboratively. Therefore, we are constantly looking for other companies to cooperate with and are very happy to announce our newest partnership with IAG Cargo. We must act now to build a sustainable future,” says Thomas Mack, Global Head of Air Freight, DHL Global Forwarding in a statement.
