The IGL Coatings Reduces Carbon Emissions with DHL

Today, IGL Coatings, a global leader in high-performance automotive and anti-corrosion solutions, announced another stride in its climate targets. The company is now DHL Express’ latest GoGreen Plus customer, utilizing sustainable aviation fuel to reduce emissions for its time-definite international (TDI) shipments by 30 percent through carbon insetting.

Launched this year, GoGreen Plus empowers customers to actively mitigate their supply chain carbon footprint. They can choose the amount of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for their shipments. The SAF is then blended with conventional jet fuel at the point of air transport to reduce the release of Carbon (CO2) and other greenhouse gases. SAF stands out as the only scalable measure for long-range flights in the coming years.

In the company’s roadmap to carbon neutrality, IGL Coatings deems sustainable aviation fuel a pivotal element. It effectively addresses and alleviates emissions resulting from the air transportation of the company’s products by up to 30 percent. Subscribing to the GoGreen Plus service allows IGL Coatings to responsibly meet the rising demand for more sustainable practices globally from consumers, partners, and other stakeholders.

IGL Coatings’ GoGreen Plus spans trade lanes, marking environmental initiatives since 2019. Besides eco-friendly products, they introduced recyclable packaging, a campaign with Plastic Bank, and distributed 6,000 seed pods.

Cutting Carbon Emissions up to 80% with Sustainable Aviation Fuel

GoGreen Plus results from major SAF deals with bp and Neste in 2022, supplying 800 million liters to DHL Express. These collaborations aim to save two million tonnes of CO2—equal to 400,000 car emissions annually.

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) comes from renewable waste, significantly cutting emissions by 80%. Société Générale de Surveillance verifies these reductions for Scope 3 and Science Based Targets (SBTi).

In DHL Group’s 2030 sustainability roadmap, GoGreen Plus targets covering 30% of fuel needs with sustainable options.
