Our Approach

Our World, Our Future

DP World’s ‘Our World, Our Future’ strategy guides our approach to delivering responsible operations in Australia. This global programme encourages us to bring sustainability into every aspect of our work, ensuring we leave a positive impact on the people, communities and environment in which we operate.

At the same time, it prepares us for a radical shift in how business in general, and logistics in particular, respond to the great challenges of climate change, education and social inequality.

Sustainable Development Goals

DP World’s ‘Our World, Our Future’ strategy is split into two components which align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The first, ‘Our World’, focuses on the efforts we are making today to operate as a responsible business across seven priority areas. It is delivered through ambitious commitments, to be achieved by 2030.

The second part of the strategy, ‘Our Future’, looks at the lasting legacy we will leave on our industry and society. It focuses on three areas where we can make a positive difference for future generations: Education, Women and Oceans. We have set out a series of pledges to be delivered by 2030.

To deliver our strategy we are working with leading organisations, partners, individuals, and institutions across Australia that align with our goals.

The 17 SDG’s address major issues such as ending poverty and hunger, improving health and education, combating climate change, and protecting our oceans and forests.
