Sustainability flows throughout EWEC’s mission. It animates strategic priorities, including securing the economic supply of water and electricity, championing change in the energy sector, and enabling the sustainability priorities in UAE Vision 2021, UAE Water Security Strategy 2036, and UAE Energy Strategy 2050.

EWEC is building a water and electricity sector that maximises resilience, relies increasingly on renewable power and optimises electricity and water costs. All of this helps reduce CO2 emissions per unit and minimises the energy sector’s environmental footprint.

By pursuing these policies in areas such as renewable energy, nuclear power, and gas power plant efficiency, EWEC is working to reduce the average carbon intensity of its system by more than 60% by 2030 compared to the 2015 level.
