DHL Takes Up SAF with Prada Group for Sustainable Air Freight

The Prada Group has invested in Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) credits in DHL utilizing DHL Global Forwarding’s GoGreen Plus service. The luxury brand has saved approximately 4,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide, which would correspond to seven percent of the Group’s total transport-associated emissions.

Mario Zini, Managing Director of DHL Global Forwarding Italy, said it is crucial to establish a clear roadmap for decarbonization that involves carriers, SAF manufacturers, regulators, and customers. “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.”

DHL highlighted that SAF is one of the most effective ways to decarbonize the aviation industry, allowing for a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 percent compared to conventional aviation fuel. This fuel is produced from waste sources, like used cooking oil and food waste.

DHL utilizes sustainable fuels to reduce emissions directly at the source. Its air carriers use sustainable biofuels. These emission reductions are transferred to DHL, which allocates them to the shippers in the form of certificates. It should be noted that the SAF utilized by DHL for the Prade Group is certified by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC). The certification guarantees that the fuel is produced in compliance with rigorous sustainability standards. The ISCC is an independent initiative and renowned certification system that promotes sustainable, traceable, deforestation-free, and climate-friendly supply chains.

It also covers sustainable agricultural biomass, biogenic wastes and residues, non-biological renewable materials, and recycled carbon-based materials.
