DHL Supply Chain has been operating a carbon-neutral distribution centre for Eaton in CTPark Pohořelice since January 2024. The developer CTP has actively participated in its transformation.

The logistics developer plans a gradual transition to carbon neutrality in all its existing warehouses by the end of 2025 as one key lever in their Sustainability Roadmap. After this year, all DHL Supply Chain distribution centres in the Czech Republic will have a neutral balance of CO2 emissions.

DHL Supply Chain focus on sustainability and implements various measures in its Pohořelice warehouse. Between 2019 and 2023, electricity consumption was reduced by 35%. For example, newly purchased trucks are already equipped with lithium-ion batteries. The possibility of using solar panels is also being considered.

“In Pohořelice, we have replaced the gas heating system with a heat pump system in full operation. We have thus achieved carbon neutrality, a commitment that DHL Supply Chain has made by the end of 2025, and Eaton has targeted for its operations by 2030,” says Jan Karban, Regional Operations Director Moravia at DHL Supply Chain.

“When DHL Supply Chain requested to turn their distribution centre in CTPark Pohořelice into a carbon-neutral one, we used our experience and prepared a plan to achieve the carbon neutrality of the distribution centre. In this project, we focused on significant modifications of heating and cooling systems, and infrastructure for electromobility, supporting the future transition to more environmentally friendly means of transport,” explained Michal Dospěl, Regional Construction Director at CTP Czech Republic.
