Nestlé has signed agreements, in the presence of senior officials from the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), with Yellow Door Energy, and ALEC Energy, a DEWA-approved solar contractor. 

The contracts are to design, install, operate and maintain a total of over 7MW of solar power at Nestlé Middle East Manufacturing in Dubai South, Nestlé Dubai Manufacturing, and the Nestlé Waters factory at National Industries Park.

The parties will contribute to the reduction of six million Kgs of CO2 emission annually.

The lease-to-own model enables Nestlé to benefit from solar power with no upfront capital investment, protect the environment, reduce the carbon footprint, as well as reduce costs.

Yves Manghardt, Nestlé Middle East Chairman and CEO, said: “One of our commitments to society in the Middle East is to provide climate change leadership and promote resources efficiency, which will be further met as our factories in Dubai soon significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions as we get closer to our ambition to shape sustainable consumption and steward resources for future generations.”

The project is in line with DEWA’s Shams Dubai initiative, which calls for the installation of solar panels to be connected to DEWA’s grid, and is in accordance with Nestlé's commitment to the RE100 initiative.
