Green starts with yellow

When Coldplay set themselves the goal of making their tour as low-carbon as possible, they needed to find a partner with expertise in sustainable logistics solutions.

That’s why Coldplay have chosen DHL as Official Logistics Partner for their Music Of The Spheres World Tour.

DHL is proud to join Coldplay on the road as their Official Logistics Partner, and will support the band in their mission to cut their carbon emissions by more than 50% - bringing you a tour that’s both green… and Yellow.

Our Sustainability Strategy

DHL is increasing the pace of its planned decarbonization. To this end, the Group is investing a total of 7 billion euros (Opex and Capex) over the next ten years in measures to reduce its CO2 emissions. The funds will flow in particular into alternative aviation fuels, the expansion of the zero-emission e-vehicle fleet and climate-neutral buildings.

Along the way towards its zero emissions target by 2050, which has already been in force for 4 years, the company is committing to new, ambitious interim targets. For example, the Group commits as part of the acclaimed Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.
