Royal Selangor, the world’s largest pewter maker, reaffirmed its commitment to green business by joining DHL Express’ GoGreen Plus programme. Through the agreement, Royal Selangor is set to reduce the carbon emissions of its international e-commerce shipments by 20 percent.
GoGreen Plus is a new service that enables DHL Express customers to efficiently lower the environmental impact of their supply chains. This is achieved through carbon insetting, which actively mitigates the release of CO2 and other greenhouse gases via air transport by blending conventional jet fuel with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Launched earlier in February, the service is a first for global express carriers.
“Royal Selangor is proud to be part of the GoGreen Plus programme. We've always viewed sustainability as a long-term commitment and are constantly looking out for methods that will help us reduce transport emissions and minimise our impact on the environment,” said Chen Tien Yue, the Executive Director of Royal Selangor Marketing. “While we continue to preserve our 138-year-old legacy in pewter design and craftsmanship, we are also investing in a more sustainable future.”
“Scaling the use of SAF and accelerating the decarbonisation of logistics require an all-hands effort,” said Julian Neo, Managing Director of DHL Express Malaysia and Brunei. “Cross-sector cooperation is integral to pursuing these objectives as we work together on solutions that are good for both planet and people. We are honored to partner with Royal Selangor, with whom we share similar ambitions on clean operations.”
