DP World picks up sustainability awards

DP World picks up two new sustainability awards

DP World has won two new awards at the 2024 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards, which honour leadership, innovation, and commitment to sustainable business practices. 

SEAL Sustainability Awards honorees ranged from well-recognised brands to high-growth start-ups and scale-ups.

The first win – the Environmental Initiative Award – was given to DP World Santos for its reuse of waste material for energy, which would otherwise be destined for a landfill site. 

The company was also honoured for its development of BOXBAY, a revolutionary automated, safe and environmentally friendly high-bay storage container system. The SEAL Sustainable Innovation Award recognises BOXBAY’s potential to transform the way containers are stacked, organised and moved, significantly reducing a terminal’s carbon emissions impact. 

The project was developed by BOXBAY in a joint venture with German industrial engineering specialists SMS group, as a solution to some of the key challenges in container port logistics, combining increased efficiency with environmental targets.

DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, said: “We are honoured to receive the Environmental Initiatives Award and the Sustainable Innovation Award at this year’s SEAL Awards.

“Winning the Environmental Initiatives Award for our work at DP World Santos in Brazil, where we’ve achieved the feat of reusing 100 per cent of the waste generated at the port, underscores our commitment to the responsible management of its waste through adopting circular economy principles and smart design.

“Additionally, being recognised with the SEAL Sustainable Innovation Award for our BOXBAY technology is a testament to our dedication to revolutionising container port logistics for greater efficiency and sustainability.” 

Last month, DP World and Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI) announced the launch of the Tanza Barge Terminal in Cavite, the Philippines.
