Dubai Managed To Reduce 1.1 Million Tonnes Of Carbon Emissions In The Past 10 Years


According to WAM News Agency, between 2012 to 2021, Dubai’s commercial sector managed to save AED 1.2 billion and 1.1 million tonnes of carbon emissions

This was possible by rationing the commercial consumption of water and electricity. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), commended customers in different sectors who contribute to protecting the environment and natural resources by using electricity and water wisely.

The targeted customers of DEWA’s conservation programmes successfully achieved cumulative savings of 2.2 terrawatt hours of electricity and 5.6 million imperial gallons of water

These savings are equivalent to annual electricity consumption from approximately 211,000 apartments and annual water consumption of 120,000 apartments. The reducing of this 1.1 million tonnes of carbon emissions is equivalent to planting 1.24 million trees and the consumption of 137 million LED lights, while water saving was equivalent to filling up 10,000 Olympic swimming pools. Just WOW!
