DB Schenker is committed to being a Sustainability Leader – our goal is to lead our industry in driving climate action. As a large global business, we have a big responsibility for the good of current and future generations. We are therefore extremely proud of our colleagues at DB Schenker in Oman (formally known as Schenker Khimji’s LLC), who, in collaboration with our partner Oman Sail, undertook an exciting initiative not only to raise awareness for local ocean conservation but also to revive the marine flora and fauna in the Gulf of Oman. The team – including a representative from the Environment Society of Oman – conducted a deep-sea dive to clean up discarded fishing nets on 4 May, removing approximately 188 kgs of old fishing nets stuck deep within the coral reefs of the Dimaniyat Islands. Fishing is a big industry for many locals in Oman. However, as in many parts of the world, a by-product of this industry is that many fishing lines and nets are often discarded or lost in the ocean, harming the life within. As a result, Oman Sail plans to begin monthly clean-ups and offer willing divers reduced diving rates to encourage them to participate.
