“At the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, we are working to implement the roadmap and plans that include national initiatives and strategies to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and consolidate the foundations for a low-carbon economy. This achieves the vision and directives of the wise leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to address climate change. This is achieved through effective solutions to support local low-carbon sectors, and pioneering projects that support the UAE’s future strategies and aspirations in building a successful green economy model,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy. The meeting also discussed a proposal by Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) to supply petroleum products to Al Maktoum International Airport through the Falcon Station in Jebel Ali. ENOC is discussing with the suppliers the possibility of using the Falcon line to supply jet fuel in order to reduce land transport and avoid transportation risks and carbon emissions.
