As DP World continues to grow and we repeatedly announce results that outperform the industry, it is a good time to identify how we got here and what keeps us at the leading edge of world trade.

I want to introduce four principles that I believe are fundamental to the ongoing success of DP World. These principles have always been – and continue to be – central to every decision I make in business and I want them to become the foundation for our company’s culture.

The principles will define what we do and who we are. In time, DP World will come to be known for the shared values of our people. It is as much about our actions as it is our attitude. Creating a common culture will help to build our entire ‘brand promise’ – how we present ourselves to the outside world and how we are perceived. Consider this process as a journey, beginning now with the adoption of the below principles and moving towards the positioning of DP World on the global stage.

You will see that the overarching theme is one of growth. DP World is a business, and our continued success depends on growth. And growth extends beyond our balance sheet, to encompass the development of our people, our industry and the economies and communities where we operate.

I encourage you to live these principles and support building our DP World culture.

CREATES GROWTH

We create growth by seeing what’s possible, especially when others don’t. We are constantly searching for the next and the new, and are not satisfied with ‘enough.’ There is always a better way, a faster or more profitable way.

  • Always Looking for Opportunities
  • Sees What Others Don’t
  • Takes Risks

 

Create Growth

DRIVES RESULTS

Ideas on their own are not enough. We make things happen, often in the mist of adversity. When faced with obstacles, we find ways to deliver. The key is to focus on the result and not to get lost in the ‘how.’ We find ways!

  • End-Result Focused
  • Finds a Solution
  • Delivers Even in the Mist of Adversity
Drive Results

ADAPTS & EVOLVES

While finding solutions, we focus on how we can make something happen. We’re not confined by the past. We adapt and evolve to create the future.

  • ‘No!’ is Never the First Reaction
  • Always Curious
  • Looks for Practical Ways
Adapt _ Evolve

MAKES OTHERS EXCEL

We create an environment where others succeed. We help people to improve, helping them to achieve more. This extends to our customers as well as our colleagues. By staying outside the comfort zone, learning and growth is part of everyday life at DP World. Part of helping people improve is valuing their time. It is our precious resource.

  • Creates an Environment Where Others Succeed
  • There Is No Comfort Zone
  • Is Efficient With Time
