Sustainably better – our path to climate neutrality:

As the world’s leading logistics company, we are keenly aware of our special responsibility for the climate. Social and ecological sustainability are an integral part of our strategy: for more than 10 years, we have sought and implemented sustainable solutions for the transport, sorting and delivery of letter mail and parcels. We develop and implement concepts allowing us to reduce CO2 emissions in absolute terms.

 Rolling out sustainable transport solutions – for road and rail

  • The new Bahntransport rail service allows private customers to actively work with us to avoid carbon emissions
  • Gas-powered trucks unlock sustainable solutions for road transport.
  • The (bio)gas-powered truck fleet will grow to more than 400 in 2022 and 2023.
