“This global ranking reflects DEWA’s position as one of the most prominent and distinguished utilities globally. At DEWA, we support the vision and directives of wise leadership, to consolidate the competitiveness of the UAE, which leads global indices in various areas. DEWA spares no effort in supporting ambitious national strategies, including the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy to provide 100 percent of Dubai’s total power capacity from clean energy sources by 2050. The secret of DEWA’s success lies in applying the principles and practices of excellence across all its operations and activities as well as in strategic planning, in addition to including them within its corporate culture.”
