Carbon offset and avoidance: active climate protection when you send letter mail items
By offering GoGreen for all letter mail products and GoGreen Plus for hybrid mail as of July 1, 2022 – and at no extra cost to customers – Deutsche Post has set new standards on the German mail market. Go with us into a green future! Choose the good or better way: offset or actively avoid the carbon emissions generated by the delivery of your letter mail. Starting now, GoGreen Plus is an integrated part of all hybrid mail items, and uses carbon avoidance methods to help customers protect the climate when sending letter mail.
As early as 2007, we were the first postal and parcel service providers in Germany to offer a climate-neutral delivery option – GoGreen – in which the CO2 emissions from transport are offset by investments in internationally recognized climate protection projects. Today, we’ve gone even greener. As of 2022, all letter mail items transported by Deutsche Post are offset automatically!
Deutsche Post is now the first postal services provider in Germany to introduce "carbon insetting" into its service portfolio –
GoGreen Plus – in which we avoid CO2 emissions in our own operations instead of offsetting them externally. This free service is available for all hybrid letters that are sent using E-POST entry products or PrintPLUS.
Thanks to our fully integrated GoGreen service, the transport of all domestic letter mail and all international letter mail, advertising mail and press products is now climate-neutral.
Customers of Deutsche Post can use the GoGreen logo as a sign of their commitment to climate protection in any number of ways, such as printing it on their envelopes. Interested? You can download the product logo and terms and conditions here.
