Operational and Strategic Highlights
DP World Annual Report & Accounts 2021
TRANSFORMING OUR BRAND
This year saw a massive change. We launched our new logo and refreshed visual identity and strengthened our end-to-end supply chain services under a strong strategy-led architecture which powers the master brand.
MAKING TRADE MORE DIGITAL
We expanded our technology solutions by launching CARGOES and DUBUY.com, connecting our physical offerings to our digital products and creating integrated solutions for our customers.
OUR COMMITMENT TO HSE
We introduced the SIF (serious injury and fatality) prevention programme to improve our understanding of SIF incidences, reduce risk and achieve our goal of zero harm. We also implemented a strategic three pillar programme to achieve our HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) ambitions, and launched the SafeLeader course to train leaders on safety expectations and uphold a positive safety culture across our business.
SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITIES
We hosted our annual Global Volunteer Week and encouraged colleagues to volunteer in activities such as mangrove planting, beach clean-ups, and toy-making for underprivileged children. Working with major global companies, we also initiated a Mangrove Forest Project
aiming to plant 100,000 seedlings.
EXPEDITING THE GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION OF VACCINES
We joined hands with UNICEF in a partnership to support the COVID-19 vaccine distribution to developing countries worldwide through our logistics network. We also partnered with other major UAE organisations as part of the Vaccine Logistics Alliance to speed up vaccine distribution by land, air and sea.
OUR COMMITMENT TO WOMEN EMPOWERMENT
We became the title sponsors of the iconic yacht Maiden’s new world tour, managed by an all-female crew. This global voyage aims to encourage more women and girls to participate and enrol in STEM subjects. On International Women’s Day, we launched “Women Lead@DP World”, an internal global development programme to encourage women leadership.
We hosted our first-ever hackathon this year at our DP World Flow Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai to encourage the youth to think more innovatively. We also partnered with Virgin Hyperloop to challenge students of ICE (Institution of Civil Engineers) MENA to design the future of transportation.
INTRODUCING THE DP WORLD TOUR
After a successful decade-long partnership with golf’s prestigious European Tour, we became the title sponsors of the tour – renaming it to ‘DP World Tour’ from the 2021 season. This further reiterates our commitment to golf and the tour.
