In its continuous drive for excellence, Abu Dhabi Ports has emerged as a key player in the global ports sector by being recognised for several awards, certifications and recognition from trade and government for innovation and excellence.

We are most proud of our recent win for the Abu Dhabi Award for Excellence in Government Performance, the most prestigious government award in UAE for three years in a row.

We garnered over 40 National and International Awards and 31 third-party certifications for our unwavering commitment to sustainability as a business, while maintaining the highest ethical standards across all our subsidiaries.

Through benchmarking ourselves against the best in class, we gained industry acknowledgement from the prestigious Lloyds List by winning the best Port Operator award three years in a row, as well as winning Seatrade and Maritime Standard awards regularly.

Success Beyond Borders

Meanwhile, some of our key third-party certifications include ISO9001 (2015), ISO 10002 (2014), OHSAS 18001 (2007) and ISO14001 (2004) to maintain our dedication to best practice.

We also gained recognition from leading trade journals, such as International Bulk Journal (IBJ), which awarded its Special Achievements Award (2016) to Maqta Gateway while Seatrade Maritime awarded us the Port Authority Award (2016) and Regional Cruise Development Award (2015) for our contribution to the industry.

Below are some of the recent awards and honors we have received.
