DP World plays a significant role in the communities in which we operate. As a world class business integral to the supply chain of our customers, we act with integrity in the development of solutions for our customers and partners, leveraging the talent of our employees to contribute to a sustainable future.

Our objective is to integrate responsible business practices into our daily activities, growing our business in a sustainable manner and maintaining our commitment to corporate responsibility. We work with our customers, suppliers and communities to identify sustainability challenges and develop partnership opportunities.

During 2012, significant progress was made in integrating corporate responsibility principles throughout DP World’s business strategy with the development of a corporate responsibility strategy and the establishment of a corporate responsibility champions network designed to ensure alignment of regional and business unit activities with our strategy. An overarching Corporate Responsibility Advisory Committee, chaired by the Group Chief Executive Officer, was also formed in 2012 to assist in the review of policies, procedures and the implementation of DP World’s corporate responsibility strategy.

We recognise that our global reach brings diversity. Rather than applying a uniform policy across the jurisdictions in which we operate, DP World’s corporate responsibility strategy is based on the four quadrants of community, environment, people and safety and marketplace. The strategy is adapted to suit the local needs of each community. This approach provides consistency, yet enables each business unit to provide the greatest benefit to the communities in which they operate.
