A bustling metropolis like Dubai can save the equivalent of 82 million trees by reducing water and electricity losses and by minimizing emissions by an average of 10% proves HE Saed Ahmad Al Tayer, CEO and Managing Director of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority.
Al Tayer, who will give the keynote speech on Quality at Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University’s Congress Leading Transformation to Sustainable Excellence, says Dubai’s emphasis on sustainability will not only enable the city to conserve its precious natural resources, “but also reduce its carbon footprint, thus preserving our environment.”
“What we see in Dubai today is a more participatory role for sustainable growth, where stakeholders from across the industry, as well as end-users, are increasingly aware of the need to conserve electricity, water and fuel usage.” — HE Saed Ahmad Al Tayer, CEO and Managing Director of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority.
