DHL marks Earth Day in Asia Pacific

DHL, the world's leading express and logistics company, announced its own "Earth Hour" initiative in conjunction with Earth Day.

To mark this international day tomorrow (22) dedicated to the environmental health of the planet, DHL offices in over 20 countries in Asia Pacific, across different time zones, will switch off their lights for one hour. This latest initiative symbolises DHL's strong commitment towards environmental sustainability.

"Earth Hour is a good initiative for us to unite over 50,000 employees across Asia Pacific in response to a global issue that affects us all. This is also anchored in our belief that everyone can play a part towards combating climate change and minimising our impact on the environment.

Environmental sustainability is a business imperative for DHL, and this includes driving environmental responsibility amongst our employees," CEO, DHL Global Forwarding, Colombo Najeeb-ur Rahman said.

This latest environmental initiative follows the recent global launch of DHL's GoGreen Climate Protection programme. Broadly, for every letter or parcel delivered, every parcel sent, every container shipped or every square meter of space used, DHL plans to reduce carbon emissions by 30 per cent by the year 2020. This also makes DHL the first in the industry to communicate specific carbon emissions reduction targets.

Earth Hour is a global event created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Sydney, Australia, to symbolise that everybody, working together, can make a positive impact on climate change.
