DHL and Formula E renew ‘sustainable partnership’

DHL will remain responsible for all zero-emission freight transported to the tournament

Big Zero Report 2023

DHL and Formula E have renewed their partnership to promote low carbon lifestyles and boost e-mobility.

The renewal will see DHL maintain its role as Logistics Partner for the FIA Formula E World Championship; transporting more than 415 tonnes of freight for the competition, including race cars, batteries and broadcasting equipment.

The transport model is set up to be as efficient as possible and cut carbon emissions.

Formula E boasts being the world’s first net zero sport since inception and DHL will work alongside the competition to continue curbing its carbon footprint.

Last year, DHL used biofuel to power all road and sea freight for the motorsport, with all remaining emissions being offset two years ahead of schedule – the same as 49,000 trees being planted.

On its environmental contribution, DHL’s Head of Global Brand Marketing, Arjan Sissing, said: “[We] will be investing €7 billion in clean operations and climate-neutral logistics through to 2030, which includes major investments in its fleet of electric vehicles (EVs).

“This, along with our goal to achieve zero-emission logistics by 2050, is a major, industry-leading commitment on the part of DHL.”

Formula E CEO Jamie Reigle added: “DHL has been an integral partner to Formula E from inception and we are delighted to extend and enhance our collaboration.

“We look forward to working with DHL to set the standard in sustainable logistics for sport and inspire fans around the world to take actions to fight climate change.”
