“DP World London Gateway is a strong example of how to operate a leaner – and therefore cleaner – supply chain. The team has been working with Planet Mark for a number of years, and has sustainability embedded into its processes. Despite rapid growth, the site has seen strong reductions in emissions over the partnership with Planet Mark. I have been continually impressed by their commitment to operating in the most environmentally possible way, and by the innovative ways that they have worked to achieve this.”
DP World believes that working in a sustainable and responsible way is essential to building a strong business for its customers, people and society. DP World brings sustainability into every aspect of its work, focusing on its commitments to minimise environmental impacts through resource and emissions management, investing in its team to celebrate diversity and development, ensuring the safety of its team, and building a secure, resilient society through strategic investments.
DP World London Gateway was intentionally designed to offer shippers a highly flexible opportunity to consolidate and sort products for onward distribution at its logistics park just a few hundred yards from the quayside, significantly reducing the number of trucks on the road and lowering carbon emissions.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, DP World has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
