Our ambition? To offset and reduce emissions

100% green energy in our establishments
Zero-emission delivery vehicles
Buildings constructed according to high standards of sustainability
Calculation of CO2 impact from source production to last-mile consumption
The ambition of climate neutrality in 2045
Why do we opt for emission offsetting?

This is an intermediate phase that continues in conjunction with the reduction phase and will continue until a total elimination of CO2 emissions planned for 2045.

How do we offset emissions?

Implementing reforestation projects and using energy from renewable sources through partnerships with specialized and certified agencies in the field.

How is compensation funded?

Through the "Climate Protect contribution" applied to customers who joined the program. 100% of the contribution will be allocated to CO2 reduction investments.

What benefits does the customer have?

The customer will be part of the project to realize sustainable logistics. In addition, he will receive a compensation certificate that he can spend in the market.

Climate Partner

Investment in offset projects is made in cooperation with ClimatePartner, a multinational company specializing in the calculation and reduction of CO2 emissions. Their work includes project management and issuing the GLS certificate.

Climate Protect projects and program

Peruvian people

Madre de Dios, Peru - GLS supports a project to protect 100,000 hectares

and working with local people to help manage the land sustainably.

Brazilian native people

Pacaj√°, Brazil - GLS is committed to providing support

to prevent deforestation of the Amazon rainforest through land tenure rights.

Indian child

Bhatel, India - GLS supports a wind power project

which reduces dependence on fossil fuels and includes several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

10%: "zero" and low emission vehicles

42% of the CO2 generated in 2021 comes from pickup and delivery service. This is why we are strongly focused on introducing electric vehicles.

17%: LNG long distance vehicles

53% of the CO2 generated in 2021 comes from long distance vehicles. Our ambition is to increase the use of Bio-LNG.

100%: CO2 compensation

From April 2022 onward, all CO2 produced is offset, meaning that we are planting trees that can cover the same amount of CO2.

60%: buildings with 100% energy from renewable sources

Fleet conversion requires that all the energy we use come from renewable sources, i.e., "zero-emission".

14%: facilities with photovoltaic systems

We want to be increasingly energy self-sufficient. The first step is self-generation of energy. All new warehouses will have a photovoltaic system.
