DP World engaging thousands of employees for global green initiative
Global trade enabler DP World is building on the past two years’ successful collaboration with the world’s leading port operators to engage communities and people across its international portfolio in promoting environmental awareness, the company said in its press release.
The Go Green Week , which started on 12 September and is ending 19 September, is a global campaign that addresses three main ecological areas – Reuse and Recycle, Climate Change and Community – through different activities that are happening across DP World’s global portfolio of 77 operating marine and inland terminals in 40 countries.
Some are being held jointly with other neighbouring ports of Hutchison Port Holdings Limited (HPH), APM Terminals, PSA International and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG). Each of DP World’s business units has chosen one or more of 12 activities during Go Green Week. These include reusing waste materials from the port, food waste composting, clean - up of terminal and surrounding areas, energy saving drives, tre e planting, volunteering at local wildlife parks and supporting environmental education.
