DP World cut global carbon emmissions in 2022

DP World cut direct carbon emissions from its global operations by 5% last year, according to its latest Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) report, reflecting progress towards its 2040 carbon neutral target.

DP World said decarbonisation is a core focus for the company, which has already committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2040 and net zero carbon by 2050 in line with the UAE’s 2050 net zero.

Over the course of 2022, DP World has tightened its ESG Governance and Risk Management framework, launched an Executive Sustainability Council to provide strategic guidance on the Group’s sustainability strategy and ESG metrics, integrated ESG as a risk into our corporate enterprise risk register, and published its first stand-alone ESG Report c 2021 – a significant milestone for the business.

Maha AlQattan, group chief people and sustainability officer at DP World, commented, "At DP World, we believe in enabling resilience, and building a smart and sustainable future that generates long-term societal impact."

He added, "In 2022 we saw continued global headwinds but that challenged us to push new frontiers of collaboration. I’m proud that we have cut our direct carbon emissions by 5%, and significantly increased our community contributions."
