Al Sharqi Shipping, a leading logistics company in the UAE, went live with its green solar rooftop project in its warehouses as a part of its green initiative.
The Solar Project is located at Al Sharqi Shipping’s 3PL facility in Dubai Industrial City. The solar panels cover a total area of 3,800 sqm and have a power output of 370 KWP. The project was co-developed and implemented by Al Shirawi Solar LLC. This initiative will help the company offset its carbon footprint and produce a sustainable energy source from the first day of its operations.
This step is taken in the growing awareness of climate change, as Al Sharqi Shipping continues to strive to make a difference in the environment. The solar rooftop project is a part of their 3PL Green Initiative aligned closely with the government of UAE’s ambition to increase clean energy use by 50%, which is part of their UAE energy strategy 2050.
“This initiative aligns with our goal to make Al Sharqi Shipping more responsible towards society and we have taken this step to reduce our carbon footprint” – CEO Kashif Rafiq.
