This initiative is part of DP World’s broader global sustainability programme to reduce its environmental footprint. The global port operator is making significant progress in reducing resource consumption cutting its carbon emissions with a five-year strategy launched in 2009, when it reduced the absolute carbon emissions of its terminals and businesses by 4.24 per cent and 3.52 per cent when normalised against TEU throughput against a 2008 base year.

DP World reported this reduction to the CDP, which collates protocols and emissions’ data for companies around the world. DP World has disclosed GHG emissions of 830,715 metric tonnes of CO2-equivalent at its operational terminals for 2009.

“We recognise that environmental and carbon issues are increasingly important to our stakeholders, including customers, investors and business partners. Energy management and GHG emission reduction are integral to DP World’s global sustainability strategy,” DP World CEO Mohammed Sharaf said.
