Strategic Investments

How we tackle global issues

As a global business we have an opportunity and a responsibility to help the communities where we operate to build a vibrant, secure and resilient society. Under the umbrella of Our World, Our Future we achieve this aim by always looking for ways to strengthen our social impact.

We also study carefully the socio-economic and environmental impacts our presence has on the communities we work in, and adjust our operations with that information in mind.

We seek out opportunities for strategic community investment, looking for projects that will support prosperity and leave a positive legacy wherever we go. Finally, we also develop strategic partnerships with organisations to tackle global issues that are important to our industry.

DP World Sustainable Development Financing Framework

DP World operates a geographically diverse network of trade enabling businesses that provide access to some of the world’s busiest production centres, as well as the largest consumer centres in developed and emerging markets. By leveraging this geographical presence, we are strongly committed to being a world leader in sustainability and demonstrating this via triple-bottom line reporting on the environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) impact/s of our business.

As part of our commitment to sustainability we have developed a Sustainable Development Finance Framework in line with ICMA Green Bond Principles 2018, Social Bond Principles 2018, and Sustainability Bond Guidelines 2018 to offer to investors.
