DP World & Expo 2020 become founding member of huge global climate change push
DP World together with Expo 2020 Dubai has become a Global Alliance Founding Partner of The Earthshot Prize, the most prestigious environmental prize in history, incentivising worldwide change with a decade of action to repair the planet.
The Earthshot Prize has been established by Prince William and is an initiative by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Taking inspiration from John F. Kennedy's 'Moonshot', which united millions of people around the world to put a man on the moon, The Earthshot Prize is centred around five "Earthshots", which are:
To protect and restore nature
To clean our air
To revive our oceans
To build a waste-free world
To fix our climate.
If the goals are achieved before 2030 is reached, the plan is that we will have improved life on earth for generations to come.
During the ten years, five prize winners will be awarded each year.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World said: "At DP World we believe in protecting our people and our planet through world-class safety and environmental standards.
"We focus on making a positive impact on economies and societies wherever we work, so we are proud to be a Global Alliance Founding Partner of The Earthshot Prize.
"We look forward to working closely with the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to deliver this ambitious and exciting project."
