Italy’s Prada Group invests in SAF credits


Italian luxury brand Prada Group said it has invested in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) credits through the DHL Global Forwarding’s GoGreen Plus service.

“We are proud that Prada Group has chosen to leverage the expertise of DHL Global Forwarding to form a partnership that we believe will drive the much-needed change forward,” said Mario Zini, managing director, DHL Global Forwarding Italy.

Prada Group said that it was able to save approximately 4,500 metric tons of CO2e emissions (equivalent to 7% of the company’s total transport associated emissions) in 2023 due to its utilisation of DHL’s SAF service.

DHL uses insetting approach, utilising sustainable fuels to reduce emissions directly at the source. Air carriers use sustainable biofuels on behalf of DHL, leading to reductions in emissions.

These emission reductions are transferred to DHL, who then allocates them to the shippers in the form of certificates.

The SAF used by DHL for the Prada Group is certified by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) in compliance with rigorous sustainability standards.
