DP World to Receive Certificate for Hydroelectric Energy

DP World, a global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions, agreed to a new partnership that will help the company reach its goal of achieving 100% carbon neutrality by 2030.

The new partnership is with a Peruvian energy provider, Enel Peru. 

DP World will receive its first international I-REC Standard certificate verifying that starting in 2023, the company will be able to use 100% renewable energy to power its operations. The certificate validates that in 2023, DP World used entirely hydroelectric energy sourced from Enel Peru’s Matucana hydroelectric plant, a run-of-river power station located approximately 40 miles east of the city of Lima. 

The I-REC Standard certificate is issued by The Green Certificate Company to verify the use of 100% renewable energy sources. It is accepted by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a carbon footprint accounting standard used by major companies globally.

DP World will receive the recognition in 2024. In 2022, the company was awarded the Green Certificate from SGS Peru, recognizing the utilization of 21,309 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electrical energy in its Callao operations.

“DP World Callao has become the first port to use 100% renewable electrical energy for all its operations. With this energy, we power mobile equipment such as dock and yard cranes, vans, and soon we will power electric trucks at the terminal. Furthermore, this practice is not limited to the port but also implemented in other areas of our logistics business. These initiatives align with our ambitious plan for carbon neutrality by 2030, which includes other strategies such as operational efficiency and digitalization, among others,” said Nicolás Gauthier, CEO of DP World Peru, in a statement.
