DP World’s Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) has launched the UAE’s first green storage and warehouse facilities in Dubai, helping businesses to reduce their carbon footprint.

The initiative utilizes solar power to make a number of Jafza warehouses more energy efficient, adding to the number of cold storage facilities that are already run on renewable energy.

The initiative aims to develop the largest distributed solar rooftop project in the Middle East, featuring the installation of 88,000 rooftop solar panels across DP World’s Dubai facilities — which will generate enough energy to power approximately 3,000 homes for a year.

DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “Corporate citizenship is part of the fabric of society today and it will play a major part in our future.

“Building green infrastructure allows us to reduce carbon footprint in our facilities.

“By investing in these projects, we also encourage the development of new skills, driving economic growth and job creation.

“Our experience and studies have shown that a mindset to conserve and the development of sustainable business practices enables efficient operation.

“This streamlines effort and saves resources, which enhances employee productivity and reduces cost.

“It a win-win for all.”

DP World’s Solar Programme also contributes to energy diversification in the region as part of Dubai’s Integrated Energy Strategy 2030, which seeks to reduce energy demand by 30% by 2030.

In 2010, DP World became the first international trade enabler to join the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) which runs the global system that enables companies, cities, nations and regions to measure and manage their environmental impact.
