“The ongoing efforts around the world to protect the ozone layer has resulted in ozone-depleting substances being phased out globally. The results are very encouraging, but nevertheless, consuming less energy can reduce the emissions of Ozone-Depleting Substances (ODS) as well, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which is utilized as a coolant in home appliances like freezers, refrigerators and ACs and can thus contribute to preserving the ozone layer. Using appliances with 5-star label also contributes to this cause as they consume less energy.
We are proud to add that Etihad ESCO has been instrumental in abating 135 K Ton of CO2 in 2017, which is known to play a role in the depletion of the ozone layer. As we move towards the achievement of 30 per cent reduction in energy demand by 2030, we at Etihad ESCO and TAQATI – the dedicated program management office for the Dubai Demand Side Management strategy – urge UAE citizens and residents to contribute to the accomplishment of this goal.”
