Why do we need green shipping?

We at Södebjörk want to make the best choice for the environment, when possible, from using more natural materials in our products and packaging to make sure that our watches reach you in the best way possible. That is why we at Södebjörk chooses to use more environmentally friendly shipping of our watches. 

SKICKA GRÖNT “Sending Green” is a climate-smart transport scheme, where DHL invests in climate-smart technology and fuel solutions in the European transportation network.

For many years, DHL has had an ambitious agenda to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. DHL wants to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels and to shift to fossil free transportation (according to Fossilfritt Sverige). Already in 2008, DHL adopted a global environmental target to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 percent per tonne-kilometers by 2020. This was achieved in 2016, long before the appointed time.

Therefore, they have raised their ambitions and will reach -50 percent carbon emissions per tonne-kilometers by 2025. DHL Freight Sweden has almost achieved this and the goal now is to maintain this reduction.

SKICKA GRÖNT is produced in DHL's green vehicle fleet. To date, these vehicles have driven 31 595 081 km in Sweden, corresponding to 788 laps around the earth. Or about 40 round trips to the moon.

In addition to DHL efforts to reduce their fossil carbon emissions, they have also since 2002 been able to offer their customers to join them in the sustainable shift for more climate-smart alternatives in the Swedish transport network. Together they have put more than 200 vehicles with clean and alternative technology on the market. Techniques DHL have invested in include for example biogas, ethanol, bioDME and electricity.

Södebjörk chooses SKICKA GRÖNT as a more eco friendly transport alternative for all packages sent within Europe. Sending green contributes to a faster shift in the transport system and enables our carriers to take a risk of a more expensive climate-smart technology that in the long term improves our environment.
