DP World wins 2 sustainability awards

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

SEAL Sustainability Awards honorees ranged from well-recognized brands to high-growth startups and scale-ups. DP World’s 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.

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

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

Bin Sulayem added that, “Additionally, being recognized with the SEAL Sustainable Innovation Award for our BOXBAY technology is a testament to our dedication to revolutionizing container port logistics for greater efficiency and sustainability.”
