Emirates Flight Catering announces giant investment in solar energy
Emirates Flight Catering, the catering business of Emirates Group among others, has launched a new solar park with more than 8,000 solar panels. This development is expected to result in an overall annual reduction of 3 million kg of greenhouse gas emissions. The initiative is part of EFC’s ongoing investment in infrastructure and, with a view to the efficient use of natural resources, contributes to the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050. This strategy was launched in 2015 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, with the aim of providing 75% of the Emirate with clean energy by 2050.
Sustainability at the heart of Emirates Group’s strategy
Sustainability is an extremely important part of the Emirates Group’s strategy, which advocates doing business responsibly and with respect for the environment. This latest Emirates Flight Catering initiative creates numerous opportunities to improve the use of natural resources, contributing to Dubai’s goal of becoming a global centre of clean energy and a green economy.
Reduction of 15% compared to traditional energy consumption
The new solar park has a total of over 8,000 solar panels and is expected to generate more than 4,000 megawatt hours of electricity. This will reduce the company’s traditional energy consumption by 15%, resulting in a reduction of 3 million kg in CO2 emissions. This is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of as many as 518 households. EKFC is also the initiator of its own recycling programme. As part of this programme, recyclable waste, such as plastic bottles, aluminium cans and foil, is collected separately.
