DP World has received over 200,000 International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs) from DEWA in the current year. Each certificate represents 1 megawatt-hour of electricity generated from renewable sources, ensuring that the electricity consumed is clean and sustainable.
The I-RECs produced by DEWA are used to power DP World’s operations in the UAE, including Jebel Ali Port, Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), and Drydocks World. These operations are now entirely powered by renewables, making DP World a leader in reducing carbon emissions in the region.
Maha AlQattan, DP World’s Group Sustainability Officer, stated that the company is committed to supporting global efforts to combat climate change through investments in zero-carbon technology and responsible business practices. DP World has set ambitious goals for itself, with a focus on decarbonization and a commitment to become carbon neutral by 2040 and net zero by 2050. These goals align with the UAE’s 2050 net zero initiative.
In addition to its efforts to reduce its own carbon footprint, DP World has also pledged to participate in the Green Shipping Challenge and invest up to $500 million towards reducing CO2 emissions by nearly 700,000 tonnes over the next five years. The company’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility is exemplary and sets an example for other businesses in the region.
