e& has announced it is a ‘Principal Technology Partner’ at the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP28) to be held this year in the UAE.

The partnership reinforces e&’s COP27 pledge to attain net-zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions for its group operations in the UAE by 2030. Further, it aligns with the Group’s strategy to approach net zero and champion global climate action for a sustainable future.

“This partnership epitomizes e&’s vision of empowering the communities we serve while safeguarding the environment for future generations. The time for action is now, and COP28 is the ideal platform where we can make this change a reality by working with everyone in every part of the world. Our partnership with COP28 emphasizes e&’s dedication to addressing global social, economic, and climate challenges, mirroring the UAE’s commitment to leading sustainable economy, industrial growth, and advancing the climate agenda across multiple sectors. As the first private sector company in the UAE to join the UICCA (UAE Independent Climate Change Accelerators), we are acting as a catalyst for change and stepping up our efforts not only in telecoms but across our technology services.”

“As our group expands to serve more markets and communities around the world as part of our transformation, our commitment to sustainable growth remains steadfast. We believe that by integrating sustainability into our core values and business practices, we can drive responsible growth that benefits all stakeholders and also make a meaningful and lasting impact on the world we serve,” Mr. Dowidar added.

The Group aims to foster sustainable economic growth and transcend traditional paradigms, uniting stakeholders in the shift from ambition to tangible results. e& will provide network connectivity and digital infrastructure during COP28 and highlight its sustainable operations, programs, and projects at its showcase in the Green Zone area in Dubai Expo City.

Earlier this year, e& reinforced its commitment to ESG by aligning with the World Economic Forum’s Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics. Joining over 100 global companies, e& now aligns its performance reporting with ESG indicators and consistently measures its contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
