Nissan Commits To CO2 Emission Reduction Across Its Operations In The Middle East Team / Posted On - July 5th 2023

New Solar Energy System to be installed at the brand’s regional headquarters in Dubai, in partnership with ENGIE Solutions GCC

Nissan Middle East has announced its plans to install a solar energy system at its regional headquarters in Jebel Ali, Dubai, showing its commitment to environmentally friendly business practices. This programme seeks to produce clean energy and is in line with the business's worldwide sustainability goals. It will cover about 30 percent of Nissan's power requirements for its activities in Jebel Ali.

ENGIE Solutions GCC will create and install this solar system, which will cover a 3,000-square-metre area. The project is scheduled to start later this year and is anticipated to provide over 700,000 kWh of renewable energy annually, which will reduce CO2 emissions by over 333 tonnes. 

ENGIE Solutions will handle the design, construction, financing, operation, and maintenance of the solar energy system at Nissan's Jebel Ali facility for the next 15 years under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Nissan Middle East will take over ownership and maintenance following the contract's expiration.

In order to install a solar PV system at Nissan's Jebel Ali faculty in Dubai, Nissan Middle East and ENGIE Solutions GCC signed an agreement last month. The agreement was signed by Thierry Sabbagh, President of Nissan Saudi Arabia and INFINITI Middle East and Managing Director for Nissan Middle East, and Ian Harfield, Managing Director of ENGIE Solutions GCC. ENGIE Solutions is undertaking the project as part of the Shams Dubai smart initiative by DEWA to integrate solar energy into buildings.

This MoU is part of Nissan Middle East's ongoing series of sustainability initiatives, in line with the brand’s global efforts to manage the environmental impact caused by its operations and products. Nissan is committed to reducing its carbon footprint globally and has joined the UN-backed Race to Zero campaign. Sustainability is central to Nissan's business and its long-term vision, Nissan Ambition 2030, for a cleaner and safer world.

A word from Nissan and ENGIE Energy Officials

Thierry Sabbagh, President of Nissan Saudi Arabia, and INFINITI Middle East Managing Director, Nissan Middle East, said, “This project marks a monumental moment for Nissan in the region, as we take a significant step towards a sustainable energy transition in line with the UAE’s commitment to a carbon-neutral future. It also strengthens the brand’s trusted partnership with ENGIE Solutions, following years of collaboration on energy decarbonization projects across Europe. As we embark on this joint venture, we look forward to accelerating the momentum towards our environmental goals in line with Nissan’s global sustainability ambitions.”

Ian Harfield, Managing Director of ENGIE Energy Solutions GCC, said, "We are thrilled to partner with Nissan Middle East on this landmark project. With our innovative deployment methods that eliminate the technical and financial barriers that held back much broader implementation, we are allowing more organizations to pursue energy decarbonization projects. We will continue to work with Nissan across the region and globally on similar initiatives that will serve as a model for a decarbonized commercial sector."
