For the third consecutive year, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Dewa, will offset its carbon emissions from Earth Hour 2018 with Certified Emission Reductions, CERs, credits from its projects, based on the Kyoto Protocol of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, UNFCCC, and as part of its commitment to protect the environment, reduce carbon emissions and support its vision of becoming a sustainable and innovative world-class utility. “We are committed to implementing the highest standards and best practices in environmental conservation and carbon reduction, to support our efforts to achieve the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and make Dubai the city with the lowest carbon footprint in the world. Dewa has adopted the best green practices in all its projects and operations, and it offsets the carbon emissions of its activities with CERs credits from its projects, based on the Kyoto Protocol of the UNFCCC. This year, we will continue to offset the emissions from organising Earth Hour activities, following last year’s successful zero-carbon Earth Hour event. Last year’s activities were offset with CERs credit from DEWA’s Turbine Inlet Air Cooling system in the L Station in Jebel Ali. The project is the first of its kind in the region and complies with the Clean Development Mechanism, CDM, of the UNFCCC,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of Dewa.Dewa urged its customers and the general public to take part in Earth Hour, a global environmental event that is observed in thousands of cities around the world, by switching off unnecessary lights and appliances between 20:30 and 21:30 UAE time on Saturday, 24th March, 2018.#earthhour#carbonemmissions#dewa#dubai#electricity#water#instadubai#mydubai#uae#connect2earth#unitedarabemirates#instagallery#climatechange#climate#unfccc @dewaofficial
