DP World Nava Sheva at Jawaharlal Nehru Port in Mumbai, won the prestigious Golden Peacock Award for Environment Management at an awards ceremony held at the Leela Kempinski, New Delhi.

The marine terminal was recognised for its many initiatives in environment management, some of which include optimising natural resources such as rain water, introducing Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses for the staff of DP World Nhava Sheva, changing the equipment and administration building lights to low energy using LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) to reduce electricity consumption, and organising an oil spill cleanup drive with employees to protect the mangroves and the marine environment around the terminal.

India’s Home Minister, the Honourable Shri P Chidambaram was the guest of honour at the ceremony, held during the 13th World Congress on Environment Management (WCEM).

Receiving the award, Anil Singh, Senior Vice President & Managing Director DP World Subcontinent Region highlighted that DP World is a signatory of the Copenhagen Communiqué on Climate Change and said: “We are delighted that our environmental efforts in Mumbai have been recognised with this important award. We have initiated a wide range of environmental best practices across the region to make a very real difference to the environment, in line with DP World’s overall commitment to preserving the environment in all communities in which we operate.”

Captain Alpesh Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of DP World Nhava Sheva, said: “Conserving our energy resources and developing the future of the country are the cornerstones of the responsible business practices we at DP World Nhava Sheva undertake, and this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of every member of the team.”

The Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT), today operated as DP World Nhava Sheva, was set up in 1997 and was India's first private-public partnership in the ports sector. DP World operates five container terminals in India, in Mumbai (JNPT), Chennai, Cochin, Mundra and Visakapatnam and supports a significant portion of India’s international containerised trade.

The Golden Peacock Environment Management Award was instituted by the World Environment Foundation (WEF) in 1998.
