Middlesex University Dubai’s Institute for Sustainable Development (ISD) conducted a training session with Deutsche Post DHL as part of the company’s Global Learn & Grow Week. The session was held on 18th June 2021 and was a great success.
Learn & Grow Week brings together DPDHL employees from all over the world to discuss topics that are at the heart of the company’s strategy, including digitisation. The session was conducted by Middlesex faculty Andrew Mackenzie, Mahine Rizvi Ahmad and Stephen King.
Participants in the session were located across three continents and different cities, including Bonn, Germany; Istanbul, Turkey; Ghana; Mauritius; South Africa; and Dubai, UAE. This workshop introduced key concepts and ideas around environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and what DPDHL are doing and can do to support such initiatives.
Through interactive activities, participants reflected upon how they are contributing to both a better world and to DPDHL’s sustainability vision, connecting people and improving lives. The guests found inspiration on how they can further contribute personally and within their communities.
ISD’s mission is to promote a sustainable future through information exchange, capacity-building and innovation and to address global challenges through research, education and engagement, preparing tomorrow's leaders for life and work.
