The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC), along with its Joint Venture subsidiaries Nawah Energy Company (Nawah) and Barakah One Company, participated in the annual Earth Hour by switching off all non-essential lighting between 8:30pm and 9:30pm on 25 March, 2017.

The organisation joined the initiative to highlight its ongoing role in combating climate change and the harmful effects of fossil fuels on the planet.

ENEC continues to promote this ideology in its implementation of its Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant within all construction and operations stages, and through its continuous collaboration with the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi (EAD) to ensure safe and sustainable building of the project.

ENEC’s CEO, Mohamed Al Hammadi, said: "We have a responsibility to protect our environment, the communities we serve and the world we live in, and ensuring that we operate safely and in a sustainable manner is of paramount importance to all of us here at ENEC and our partners."

Organised by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Earth Hour is an annual event held to encourage individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol of their commitment to the planet.
