 Global trade enabler DP World has become the first company in its sector to join the World Ocean Council (WOC) as part of its leadership journey to actively engage in the protection of the world’s oceans. 

By becoming a member of the growing international multi-industry alliance on “Corporate Ocean Responsibility” DP World will commence, enhance and advance our role as a responsible leadership company.
 
The WOC is a global, cross-sectoral business leadership alliance with a network of over 35,000 stakeholders addressing corporate ocean responsibility. Developed by and for the private sector, it addresses issues affecting ocean sustainable development, science and stewardship. It brings together representatives from shipping, oil and gas, tourism, fisheries, aquaculture, mining, renewable energy, ocean technology and financial services sectors. The WOC is a registered not-for-profit organization in the US, the UK and Europe.
 
DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “We recognize the value and need in establishing partnerships to undertake robust ocean stewardship and combat marine pollution. Our experience and expertise across our network in marine environments will contribute to the alliance and its work in areas such as sustainable ocean development and science. The Council will support our commitment to protect the ocean’s natural resources and our intention to become a leader in this area of environmental stewardship which forms part of our sustainability program, ‘Our World, Our Future.’”
 
Paul Holthus, the World Ocean Council’s founding president and CEO, said: “We are extremely honored and pleased to welcome DP World on board as the first global trade enabler to join the World Ocean Council. Ports are an essential component to ocean sustainable development and the company has a key role in the movement of cargo, with 78 marine and inland terminals in over 40 countries. The WOC and DP World will work together to promote sustainable development in ocean protection and conservation.
