We endeavour to make a lasting positive impact to the marginalized communities in our vicinity by means of the ongoing sustainability initiatives of the company:
Sehat Ki Sawari – Our healthcare project is being carried in association with Wockhardt Foundation’s flagship programme Mobile 1000. We have deployed a mobile medical unit (Sehat Ki Sawari) for providing basic medical facility in the vicinity of Nhava Sheva. Sehat Ki Sawari is equipped with MBBS doctor and a pharmacist providing diagnosis and cure for: Blood Pressure, Hemoglobin levels, Malaria, Diabetes, Fever, Cough, Cold and Dengue and multivitamins tablets to tackle malnutrition in the marginalized communities.

Installation of Solar Street Lights – 35 solar enabled LED Streetlights are installed by DP World Nhava Sheva in 4 adjoining villages namely Panje, Dongri, Phunda and Mothijui providing safety to pedestrians and vehicles while travelling by road leading to conducive well lit environment of nearby communities and promoting environmental sustainability.
Amenities for UNESCO World Heritage – Elephanta Caves - Every year around 10 lakh tourists visit the Elephanta Caves which is a UNESCO World Heritage. Since the place is underdeveloped, there are no facilities of resting and people rest on walls and grill resulting in their damage and lack of cleanliness. DP World Nhava Sheva installed 75 FRP benches at Elephanta Island and 20 dustbins to maintain environmental sustainability at the world heritage site.
