Our World, Our Future

Group Chairman's Message:

"We are committed to being world leaders in sustainability. It is as important to us commercially as it is to the societies in which we operate. As a major global employer we know we can play a significant role in improving people’s lives, strengthening their communities, and protecting their environment.

I am proud of the significant progress we have made – not only through our corporate efforts but also from the huge contribution made by our teams across the world.

Our World, Our Future has created a platform for our people to get involved, move forward and make a big difference in the communities in which they live and work.

Sustainability is for the long term and I look forward to the next chapter." - Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem

Sustainable Development Goals

Committed to responsible business

We believe that working in a sustainable and responsible way is essential to building a strong business for our customers, our people and our society. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are important to DP World because they fit with our intention to work in a sustainable and responsible way.

Through DP World’s wide-ranging sustainability initiatives brought together under Our World, Our Future, we are already helping address the SDGs in various different ways.

In 2018, we launched two new pillars - Women’s Empowerment and Oceans - building on our commitments and using the SDGs as our framework to find innovative solution to global issues.
