“BESIX remains steadfast in its commitment to spearhead sustainable solutions aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Renewing our trusted partnership with Dubai Municipality, alongside esteemed developers ENOC and Marubeni, we are proud to drive forward towards a greener future. SAF plays a pivotal role in shaping the energy landscape of tomorrow, and it comes as no surprise that the Emirate of Dubai and the UAE stand at the forefront of this transformative endeavor,” said Peter Lembrechts, General Manager at BESIX Middle East.
