DP World wins awards for global sustainability and education programmes

posted on 22/06/2017: 1771 views


DP World has won Gold for Employee Engagement award at the International CSR Excellence Awards in London, in recognition of its Global Education initiative, and being named Sustainability Champion for its ‘Our World, Our Future' global sustainability programme.

‘Our World, Our Future' was launched in February 2016 to unite DP World's wide-ranging sustainability efforts and ensure maximum impact. Over the past year, it has reached all of DP World's 36,500 employees across six continents, establishing it as a leading responsible business.

The innovative Global Education Programme is being implemented across the world following a pilot study in early 2016. It involves employees delivering lessons in local schools to increase the knowledge of the industry in young people. The modules encourage children to consider a career in the maritime and trade industry, helping develop a future talent for a crucial sector.

The programme aims to reach 34,000 young people by 2020. To date, more than 200 employees have been involved, engaging over 5,500 students across 14 countries.

DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said, "We are committed to being world leaders in sustainability, a key part of which means helping to develop young people in the communities where we operate, and I am delighted to have our efforts recognised. We know we can play a significant role in improving people's lives, strengthening their communities, and protecting their environment. We take this responsibility very seriously, and I look forward to building on what we've achieved and finding ways for us to continually do more." http://wam.ae/en/details/1395302620167
