- PRESS RELEASE
Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC (TAQA) has become a member of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group (ADSG). ADSG was established by the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi, with the support of the Executive Council of Abu Dhabi Emirate, to integrate sustainability into the Emirate's economic and social development programmes.
TAQA strengthens the security and resilience of Abu Dhabi's growth by developing its energy infrastructure and diversifying its sources of supply.
Carl Sheldon, TAQA's Chief Executive Officer, said: "Sustainability is of paramount importance to TAQA. As a global energy company we have a responsibility to look after our people as well as the communities and environments in which we operate. Supporting economic and social development and protecting the environment are fundamental to the way we behave as a business. I am therefore delighted we have joined the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group, and I look forward to working with the Group's members to further TAQA's sustainability efforts."
Huda Al Houqani, Director of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group, said: "We live in an age where financial profitability and efficiency key performance indicators are no longer enough. We encourage other organisations to follow TAQA's example."
TAQA's Energy Solutions division is responsible for deploying advanced technology in energy production and establishing alternative energy operations including wind, solar, geothermal, hydropower and waste-to-energy. In June TAQA joined forces with The Centre of Waste Management Abu Dhabi to evaluate the feasibility of developing one of the world's largest waste-to-energy facilities in Abu Dhabi. Such a facility would divert up to 1 million tonnes of waste from landfills every year, meeting one objective laid out in the Plan Abu Dhabi 2030.
Dr Saif Al Sayari, Executive Officer and Head of TAQA's Energy Solutions division, said: "Membership of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group will provide better access to learning and knowledge sharing opportunities. Sustainability management helps TAQA to achieve its long-term goals and support the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030."
