Renewable and Sustainable
The Virgin Hyperloop One system underpinning DP World Cargospeed is unique in that it doesn’t need to be passenger-only or cargo-only. It is a mixed-use system that fully utilizes system capacity and maximises economic and social benefits.
Systems are 100% electric and can be powered by renewable energy, creating a more sustainable solution for cargo transport. This innovative initiative is set to accelerate a sustainable and digital transformation of business operations.

The report illustrates our commitments with regard to our most relevant Sustainable Development Goals. We use the international GRI reference framework to make our performance measurable and our commitments tangible.

Highlights in the first sustainability report covering 2013-2016 include DP World Antwerp's leadership position in safety within the port of Antwerp, our sustainable investments such as efficient and energy saving automated stacking cranes, a wind turbine and a biogas plant, and finally our well trained and committed staff.
