On the occasion of the recently held World Environment Day, DP World’s Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) launched the UAE’s first green storage and warehouse facilities in Dubai. The project supports the UAE Vision 2021 for a sustainable environment and includes construction of the largest distributed solar rooftop project in the Middle East, with the installation of 88,000 rooftop solar panels on DP World’s Dubai facilities.
DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “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.”
In 2010, the company was 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.
