Enova to help Carrefour advance sustainability goals
Move comes in line with Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to become Net Positive by 2040
Majid Al Futtaim Retail, which holds the franchise rights to operate Carrefour in 38 countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa, signed an agreement with Enova to help it advance its sustainability ambitions.
Enova has been contracted to help Majid Al Futtaim Retail lower its utilities consumption, and explore and execute renewable energy solutions
The arrangement will apply to crucial functions across all markets where Majid Al Futtaim Retail operates, and includes energy and facilities management, renewable energy and technical and advisory services.
This new partnership comes as a result of Majid Al Futtaim’s group-wide net positive ambitious objectives to reduce its businesses’ water consumption and carbon emissions to the extent that the group puts more back into the environment than it takes out.
Enova, a joint venture between Majid Al Futtaim and Veolia, has been offering integrated smart solutions to its customers across the country.
Hani Weiss, chief executive officer, Majid Al Futtaim Retail said: “Our sustainability ambitions required a strategic partner that can bring the latest solutions to achieve optimum efficiency and end user comfort.
Today’s signing with Enova reflects our ongoing commitment to our business sustainability and to the communities in which we operate.”
Anne Le Guennec, chief executive officer, Enova added: “Our unique integrated offering seamlessly combines energy and facilities management, creating win-win situations which concurrently reduce the environmental impact and operating costs. We look forward to helping our colleagues at Majid Al Futtaim Retail optimise both.”
