Dubai achieved a 21 percent reduction in carbon emissions in 2021, demonstrating the effectiveness of initiatives aimed at expanding solar energy projects and increasing factory and facility operating efficiency. This also reflects the success of waste recycling operations in the electricity, water, industry, road transportation, and waste treatment sectors.
These findings were revealed at the 72nd meeting of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
The meeting covered a variety of topics, including the outcomes of the Dubai Strategy to Reduce Carbon Emissions 2030, which aims to cut carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030 in support of the UAE’s efforts to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
The meeting also discussed the plan presented by Emirates Gas Company, one of the Emirates National Oil Group (ENOC), to transition from using current gas cylinders to developed cylinders that provide better safety benefits and reduce weight in the coming period.
