DP World's Go Green Week is an annual initiative to help green our communities and promote more sustainable business practices.

Go Green Week 2019

DP World Australia (DPWA) joined the action for Go Green Week 2019, with a range of local events targeted around the event theme of ‘Plant More Green’. Over 20 employees from DP World's east coast terminals rolled up their sleeves to make the communities in and around their terminals a little greener.  

  • DP World Brisbane terminal planted 400 trees at picturesque Gibson Island, in Murarrie, located near DP World's Fisherman Island terminal.
  • DP World Sydney terminal helped out their local school community by tending the gardens at La Perouse Public School and building a custom pathway for children. 
  • DP World Melbourne terminal donated garden supplies and trees, filled garden beds with fresh soil, mowed, weeded and fertilised at Braybrook Commons Community Gardens.

In total, more than 12 hours of manual labour time was donated, 420 trees and greeneries planted and countless weeds pulled in the successful initiative. 

Kristen Street, our National Health, Safety and Environment Manager said:

“Go Green week connects us to local communities as well as our colleagues across the world to have a positive environmental impact.”

DP World has been participating in Go Green Week for four years, addressing one of three main ecological areas each year: reuse and recycle, climate change and community. It was first endorsed by DP World in 2015, when the commitment was made to join forces with four global terminal operators. The goal of the alliance: promoting sustainable ports in partnership with the communities where we work.

Many ports and terminals across DP World’s global portfolio of 77 operating marine and inland terminals in 40 countries participate each year in Go Green Week.
