Mission 2050: Zero Emissions
Bonn is also where the Deutsche Post DHL Group has its headquarters – this global leader in the postal service and logistics industry is also a pioneer in sustainable transport and logistics. Through its “Mission 2050: Zero Emissions” campaign, the company intends to demonstrate how logistics businesses can help protect the climate. The objective of this new strategy is to reduce all emissions relating to transport to zero by 2050. “The United Nations has taken on the courageous goal of limiting global warming to below two degrees Celsius in relation to the global temperature prior to the Industrial Revolution. This is a very ambitious undertaking – some have even described it as impossible to achieve. However, that does not mean we shouldn’t try,” explains Dr. Frank Appel, chief executive officer of the Deutsche Post DHL Group.
