A bid to find the best solutions focused on overcoming global sustainability issues
DHL, in partnership with Dubai South and EZDubai, has recently announced the launch of its new international innovation challenge, ‘The Fast Forward Challenge: Sustainable Solutions’. The challenge calls for individuals and businesses across four continents to pitch their innovative technologies and solutions aimed at solving global sustainability issues.
The 2023 Fast Forward Challenge’s theme is ‘Sustainable Solutions’, and it is inspired by DHL’s commitment to positively contributing towards the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and its mission to achieve net-zero logistics by 2050.
“At DHL, we are proud that sustainability is a cornerstone of our business strategy – we are working to reduce our logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050,” remarked Amadou Diallo, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding Middle East & Africa (MEA).
The best ideas from the MEA region will be invited to pitch to a panel of industry primes and decision makers at the DHL Innovation Centre in Dubai. The MEA winner will then receive additional mentorship and an opportunity to conduct a proof of concept with DHL.
