What does climate-neutral shipping mean?

Climate-neutral shipping signifies that the greenhouse gases produced are offset again. Therefore, climate-neutral shipping not only includes the environmentally friendly transport of parcels, but also the support of climate projects and the expansion of a sustainable energy supply.

Our goal is to constantly reduce emissions, to compensate for them where possible and, in the best case, to avoid them to directly.

And how does GLS put climate-neutral shipping into practice?

With our environmental initiative Klima Protect , we promote and coordinate various internal activities to protect the environment. Among other things, this has resulted in the GLS Klima Protect project in 2019: 100% climate-neutral parcel shipping within Germany - also for you as a business customer!
