Corporate sustainability for DEWA
Authority embraces best social, economic and environmental practices
Dubai’s electricity and water authority (DEWA) has initiated a corporate sustainability programme, incorporating best practices from social, economic and environmental aspects in order to create a sustainable urban environment.
In line with the authority’s motto ‘For Generations to Come’, the programme is planned to define present and future sustainability requirements and strategies in a challenging business environment, attempting to support the alignment of the current generation’s needs along with those of future generations.
Discussing the programme, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA said: “The launch of the corporate sustainability programme corresponds with Dubai’s environment strategy, which focuses on sustainability. Recent studies initiated by DEWA reinforced the decision to develop and implement a corporate sustainability programme to cope with the current challenging business environment, and to define proper strategies that would classify DEWA as a leading sustainably entity.”
He continued: “DEWA adopts a vision that revolves around the concept of corporate sustainability through setting a green strategy, aiming at protecting the natural environment and conserving resources, while in the mean time taking into account all the relevant social, cultural and economic aspects.”
