Ajman Bank has entered into a new contract with Positive Zero, that will enable huge cost and carbon footprint savings.

According to the statement, by implementing Positive Zero’s fully financed energy efficiency solutions at their headquarters, Ajman Bank expects to save 28 percent on energy costs and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 752 tons annually, equivalent to planting 11,300 trees.

Positive Zero is the leader in decarbonizing businesses and communities in the Middle East through a range of on-site clean power, energy efficiency, and electric mobility solutions.

The project involves a 10-year Shared Savings Energy Performance Contract (SSEPC) delivered by Positive Zero’s energy efficiency arm (Taka Solutions), which is the leading provider of energy efficiency services in the region. It includes the implementation of eight energy efficiency measures (or EEMs) tailored to Ajman Bank’s facilities, in line with its robust commitment to environmental sustainability.
