Japan’s semiconductor producer signs up for DHL’s SAF service
DHL Express announced that it has signed a long-term agreement with Japan’s SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions for GoGreen Plus service to reduce emissions through the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
“We are actively working to combat climate change in our supply chain with the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 in order to contribute to a more sustainable society. The contract with DHL as an important milestone in our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, especially since nearly 80% of our total sales are from our clients overseas,” said Masato Goto, president, SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions Co.
GoGreen Plus is DHL Express’ international shipping service that insets the carbon emissions through the use of SAF.
With the signing of this agreement, SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions aims to reduce 100% of the CO2 emissions associated with their use of international express shipment which they use for shipping of small parts including maintenance parts.
“For many of our Japanese customers, many of their overseas business partners and customers expect our customers to do more to combat climate change. We are delighted that our GoGreen Plus service will be fully leveraged by SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions to bring down their Scope 3 emissions,” said Tony Khan, president, DHL Express Japan.
Currently, about 1,500 companies in Japan have adopted the DHL Express GoGreen Plus service for their international shipments to reduce their emissions.
