Our World: Seven Priorities
As a global business, having strong foundations to ensure we are operating responsibly is vital to our long-term success. To achieve this, our ‘Our World’ strategy focuses on efforts to operate as a responsible business across seven priority areas.
From the scale of energy required to make and move goods to the resource intensity of logistics, we focus on measuring and managing our direct environmental impacts and preventing global climate change.
With Super Post Panamax dock cranes (STS) and remote-controlled rubber wheeled bridge cranes (RTG), which are fully electric and have zero carbon emissions, we saved as much electricity as 438 families of 4 people consumed annually in 2019. In 2019 e saved a total of 279 barrels of oil with Reach stackers (RS), a different tool that we use to handle containers in our field.
The logistics industry exposes us to a wide range of health and safety risks. Our goal is to make sure everyone goes home safe by adopting a zero harm approach, and building a culture where safety is naturally ingrained into our everyday actions and mind-set.
Keeping supply chains secure is critical to ensure the safety of our people and operations. We are a member of Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, Authorized Economic Operator, Container Security Initiative and Megaports, helping us to secure the supply chain.
We believe in promoting the emotional, financial, social and physical wellbeing of our people to help them thrive. We’re developing a culture that prioritises wellness in all aspects of work and life, within a measurable framework that we can report on.
DP World’s Code of Ethics sets out how we maintain international best practice in preventing conflicts of interest, fraud, insider trading, misuse of information and modern slavery. We focus on creating an honest and open culture to build trust and foster strong relationships.
We use our strong relationship with communities to improve social outcomes. From direct community investment to employee volunteering and charitable giving, we invest in and improve the communities in which we operate.
Offering development opportunities enables our colleagues to achieve business success and personal growth. We provide targeted learning and development experiences to give us a competitive advantage in smart trade.
