Bribery

DP World recognises bribery as unethical conduct that has a negative impact on society: it causes political instability, creates social insecurity, weakens institutions, and distorts markets. The senior management of DP World has adopted a non-negotiable commitment to excluding bribery from its business. This commitment to anti-bribery is supported by clear policies, practical procedures, workforce training and regular monitoring and review.

Tax Integrity

DP World recognises that tax evasion undermines the ability of governments to invest in infrastructure and provide services. This inhibits economic growth, increases social instability, and increases the risk to legitimate businesses.

DP World is committed to complying with all tax laws and regulations in each jurisdiction where it holds business interests. The Group has a responsibility to its shareholders to manage its global tax position effectively and efficiently. To ensure that this happens only in a lawful and ethical manner, DP World has a Tax Integrity Policy that is binding on all staff members and DP World companies.
