Dubai: The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) has received ISO 50001:2018 in energy management systems and the Net-Zero statement of verification certificate. The certifications were given after a comprehensive assessment conducted by W3 Solutionz, USA, through CanaGulf International Standardisation.
The new accomplishment adds to DSCE’s achievements in energy management systems and contributes to the transition towards a low-carbon economy.
“This is accomplished by increasing the share of renewable and clean energy in Dubai’s energy mix, enhancing performance, improving energy efficiency, launching initiatives, and periodically reviewing work plans to reduce carbon emissions across all our operations. The efforts of the organisations and authorities under the Council contributed to reducing carbon emissions in Dubai by 19 percent in 2022 compared to 2010,” Mr. Al Tayer added.
Mr. Ahmed Buti Al Muhairbi, Secretary-General of the DSCE, noted that the achievement underlines its efforts to enhance energy efficiency by developing comprehensive plans to improve energy performance in organisations and facilities as well as raising awareness on the necessary practises for their successful management.
The audit process conducted by CanaGulf International Standardization was based on several guiding principles, including establishing targets, implementation, leadership, commitment, measurement and monitoring, results, communication, reporting, transparency, and improvement. This is per the Net Zero Guidelines (IWA 42:2022), which were announced during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 27) last year.
