Eco-friendly initiative launched by DEWA
DEWA rolls out Green Procurement Programme to preserve the environment
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), has launched an eco-friendly initiative under the theme 'Green Procurement Programme'.
The initiative's aim is to promote the use of green technology and sustainable energy to preserve the environment, and benefit the community economically and socially.
Through the programme, DEWA aims to reduce waste, promote recycling, and encourage stakeholders to rationalise the use of various materials, to avoid a negative impact on the environment. To this end, it will promote the purchase of green materials from authorised suppliers who provide sustainable and eco-friendly supplies.
"Led by our vision to become a sustainable world-class utility, we are committed to implementing an integrated strategy for conserving our precious natural resources for generations to come. We adopt the highest environmental standards across our various activities and operations," said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
He continued, "DEWA works in line with the vision of Dubai Government to promote green initiatives. The Green Procurement Programme will help us to reduce the use of natural resources, promote recycled materials, minimise waste, and raise awareness on conservation.
"This will contribute to reduce expenses on the long run, and further position DEWA as an international model in the field of sustainability and environment."
The programme works in accordance with the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS).
