GCC AND THE WORLD.

DP World has become the first international marine terminal operator to join the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a disclosure and reporting framework used by 3,000 of the world's largest companies to report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate change strategies.

The Dubai-based global port operator 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 has set a goal to reduce GHG emissions at its terminals by 27 per cent by 2013 under its five-year plan.
