DSV goes green

Danish transport and logistics company, DSV, is launching Green Logistics with a focus on reducing emissions for its customers.

The Green Logistics solutions will be available for companies of all sizes globally and across all major transportation modes.

It aims to accelerate the green transition in global supply chains. With four tailored solutions ranging from CO2 reporting, green supply chain design & optimisation to sustainable fuel offerings across all transportation modes and carbon offsetting, DSV wants to help customers reduce their CO2 emissions from transportation without restraining their businesses.

“DSV is determined to support the green transition of our industry,” said DSV Group CEO, Jens Bjørn Andersen.

“As the world’s third-largest transport and logistics company, we take our responsibility seriously. We are ready to act together with all our partners and customers so that we can reduce CO2 emissions and mitigate the negative impact of climate change.

“By providing our customers with our new Green Logistics offerings, we are going to analyse and advise our customers to rethink their supply chains and enable them to conduct their business in a more sustainable way.”

In 2020, DSV set approved Science Based Targets (SBT) with ambitious targets for greenhouse gas reductions across scope 1, 2 and 3 by 2030 from a 2019 baseline. More than 98 per cent of the CO2 emissions registered by DSV are generated as scope 3 emissions compiled by all types of subcontracted freight.

“With Green Logistics, DSV is taking a significant leap from commitment to action,” said Andersen.

“Today, we bring forward four solutions that will enable us to keep supply chains flowing in a more sustainable way and with respect for our nature. But we can only move the sector and cut down CO2 emissions if we have our customers’ engagement and a collaborative approach. We must act together.”

In 2020, DSV announced ambitious targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative for reducing the company’s CO2 emissions.

By 2030, DSV has committed to reducing scope 1 and 2 emissions (e.g. from company cars, offices and warehouses) by 40 per cent and scope 3 emissions (primarily from subcontracted freight transport) by 30 per cent from a 2019 baseline.

In other news, DSV released a strong set of Q3 2021 numbers across all three divisions.
