Investing in finding a solution and furthering the goal, DEWA is partnering with the Great Arab Minds Committee and Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities to exchange ideas and experiences for green buildings.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, said it is one of the first organizations in Dubai to adopt the concept of green buildings, and the plan includes programs for energy and water, transport, industry, buildings, and waste management sectors.
Talking about the partnership, Saeed Al Nazari, Secretary-General of the Great Arab Minds Committee, said, “This constitutes a significant scientific movement in the Arab World by engaging the geniuses and brightest minds of the Arab World in the work of government organizations. Through its strategic partnerships, it enhances the impact of knowledge in research, innovation, and creativity, thereby contributing to realizing the initiative’s vision.”
DEWA is also working with the Emirates Green Building Council to reduce emirate carbon emissions. In 2022, Dubai saw a decrease of 19% in net carbon emissions compared to 2010. By 2030, the goal is to reduce carbon emissions by 30%, as per the Dubai Carbon Abatement Strategy.
