Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD&CEO of DEWA, has emphasised the vital role that the media plays in enhancing sustainable development in its social, economic, and environmental aspects, as well as raising awareness of the shift towards a green economy.
"Guided by the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, DEWA gives great importance to sustainability and the shift towards a green economy. This is achieved by increasing the share of clean and renewable energy in line with the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100 percent of Dubai’s total production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050. We consider the media a key partner in this process, as it plays a pivotal role in sending purposeful messages that address sustainability issues, to which our wise leadership attaches great importance. The media also highlights DEWA’s efforts in sustainability, clean and renewable energy, energy efficiency, protecting the environment, the sustainable use of natural resources, encouraging eco-friendly electric vehicles and other sustainable practices,” said Al Tayer.
