DHL Supply Chain Australia has extended a partnership with Qantas Future Planet to support carbon-offsetting projects for the next three years.

It forms part of a push to achieve carbon neutrality for its operations in the country, with DHL noting it remains on track to achieve net-zero logistics-related carbon emissions by 2050.

The Qantas Future Planet partnership has contributed to outcomes including the Babinda Reef Project in Queensland, as well as carbon offset and energy efficiency efforts.

It spotlights a new distribution centre in Victoria powered by a 100kW solar panel system for partner Mattel, and its New South Wales logistics facility opened in 2018 also powered by a 100kW solar panel system.

"Our commitment to environmental conservation is very important to us," DHL Supply Chain Australia & New Zealand CEO Saul Resnick says.  

"We work closely with our partners and customers in Australia to deliver sustainable and environmentally-friendly supply chain operations that are both cost-efficient and operationally excellent."

"The Qantas Future Planet program is a fantastic platform that enables us to reach some of Australia’s most vulnerable habitats and impacted communities.

"By contributing to these efforts, we are on track to meet our long-term goal of completely reducing all logistics-related emissions to net-zero by 2050."

DHL Supply Chain notes its warehousing and road transport operations offset more 25,000 tonnes of carbon emissions in 2018, equivalent to the annual energy consumption of almost 3,000 homes in Australia.
