KASIKORNBANK (KBank) has signed up for DHL Express GoGreen Plus service to reduce carbon emissions of its cross-border transportation of documents using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). As the first bank in Thailand to take up the service, KBank is determined to support its business customers in contributing to environmental conservation. This effort is expected to significantly reduce the overall life-cycle carbon footprint by up to 80 per cent compared to conventional aviation fuel while also cutting the emission of harmful substances, including small particles and sulfur. This initiative will contribute to the company’s journey towards net-zero emission operations in a sustainable manner.

Mr. Kullawat Phumthien, KBank’s First Executive Vice President, said, “KBank has operated its business in accordance with the principles of a Bank of Sustainability. We have implemented an environmental policy focusing on reducing our services’ carbon footprint. The objective of DHL Express’s GoGreen Plus aligns with KBank’s goal, thus inducing us to become the first bank to support and encourage our business customers to dispatch their shipping documents through SAF solutions instead. Our customers will not be charged additional expenses, so all sectors can contribute to reducing global warming, an important goal that requires everyone’s collaboration.”

Mr Herbert Vongpusanachai, Managing Director, DHL Express Thailand and Head of Indochina, said, “We are honoured to onboard KBank on our GoGreen Plus service to reduce carbon emissions for its time-definite international (TDI) shipments through the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as we align closely on our aspirations for sustainable operations. SAF effectively tackles this challenge and delivers climate advantages in the immediate near term. As the global leader in logistics, we are working diligently to expedite the availability and affordability of SAF, enabling our customers to achieve their net-zero goals.”

The GoGreen Plus service aims to reduce the overall life-cycle carbon footprint by up to 80 per cent compared to conventional aviation fuel while also cutting the emissions of harmful substances, including small particles and sulfur, with the use of sustainable aviation fuel. These emissions are generated during logistics activities – receiving and delivering parcels and documents – which are integral to the supply chain process in import-export businesses. Additionally, the effort will help drive the business sector towards achieving net-zero carbon emissions stably and sustainably.
