GoGreen Plus is based on carbon insetting. Insetting is the practice of avoiding carbon emissions by investing in additional reduction measures in our own logistics network. Carbon is reduced on a 1:1 basis. In other words, the amount of carbon avoided is equal to the amount generated previously for the transport and delivery of an individual letter. As a result, mail items sent using GoGreen Plus are completely carbon neutral.
Standard GoGreen is based on offsetting. In this case the emissions generated during transport and delivery are offset through investments in certified climate protection projects around the world. As of January 1, 2022, all letter mail, international advertising mail and press products are automatically offset.
