DP World has received over 200,000 International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs) from DEWA this year, ensuring that all electricity consumed in their UAE operations is generated from renewable sources. The I-RECs are produced by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park and power Jebel Ali Port, Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), and Drydocks World.
By utilizing renewable energy, DP World’s operations have become entirely carbon-free, enabling them to surpass the UAE’s goal of reducing carbon emissions by 42% by 2030. Maha AlQattan, DP World’s Group Sustainability Officer, emphasized the company’s dedication to supporting global efforts to combat climate change through investments in sustainable technology and responsible business practices.
DP World has set ambitious targets for decarbonization, committing to becoming carbon neutral by 2040 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050. These goals align with the UAE’s own net zero initiative for 2050. In addition to these efforts, DP World announced its participation in the Green Shipping Challenge at COP 27 last year and pledged to invest up to $500 million over the next five years to reduce CO2 emissions by nearly 700,000 tonnes.
