ADIB, DHL Join Hands For Sustainable Transformation in Logistics


Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) has teamed with DHL, the world's top logistics company, for the GoGreen Plus, the latest addition to their sustainability solution. DHL is allowing ADIB to decrease carbon emissions related with their shipments by using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) through this service. 

This collaboration marks a significant milestone, as ADIB becomes the first bank in the MENA region to sign up for DHL Go Green Plus, which enables the Bank to reduce their Scope 3 emissions, encompassing indirect greenhouse gas emissions originating within a company's value chain, including downstream transportation and distribution, as per zawya.

The declaration is in line with the UAE's revised objective of reducing emissions by 40% by 2030. As part of this program, ADIB cooperated with DHL to determine the CO2e emissions associated with their shipments' logistics. This collaboration helps ADIB meet its promise to reduce DHL-related emissions and strengthens its pledge to achieve a 30% reduction in ADIB's Scope 3 emissions by the end of 2023. This is an important step toward ADIB's long-term aim of fully controlling the bank's Scope3 emissions.

Mahmoud Haj Hussein, Country GM for DHL Express UAE, quoted: “Connecting people and improving lives is our purpose at DHL and when we fulfil our purpose, we make the world a better place. Within our ESG framework, we all have a big responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint for the long-term sustainability of our planet. We have gone one step further on our commitment by enabling our customers to inset carbon emissions within their value chains through our investment in SAF.
