Global Education Programme: impacts in numbers since launch (May 2016)Schools
A milestone in 2016 was the launch of our Global Education Programme. Piloted in seven countries and now rolled out all over the world, it embodies the philosophy of Our World, Our Future: as leaders in our industry, it is our responsibility to invest in the future, to give today’s young people the knowledge and skills they will need to run the operations and economies of tomorrow.
We worked with education experts EdComs to develop a unique series of learning modules for 8 to 14 year-olds, designed to be delivered by our own employee volunteers at schools in their local communities. The nine modules are available in eight languages, and are being used in classrooms from Buenos Aires to Manila.

In February 2016, we launched Our World, Our Future – an ambitious programme that embeds sustainability at the heart of everything we do, across our network.
Our World, Our Future is a major long-term investment to drive best practice and foster innovation in sustainability around the world, while measuring and reporting on our progress.
Good governance and risk management are core to our business achieving its objectives. The DP World business model integrates best practice in these areas and is the blueprint to achieving our vision as a Group: to lead the future of world trade. The implementation of good governance practices adds value to our performance, improves our strategic thinking, and allows us to run our business more effectively and better monitor the risks we face.
The Corporate Governance Report has been structured to align with the principles set out in the Corporate Governance Best Practice Standards as detailed in the Dubai Financial Services Authority (the “DFSA”) Markets Rules. It sets out the actions that we have taken in 2016 to implement these practices.
