At Dubai Customs, the environmental management system is based on ISO 14001, to make sure that all operations, management activities, constructions, maintenance and other initiatives comply with global environmental standards.


Energy Management
"At Dubai Customs, we keep reducing energy consumptions through high-energy efficient facilities and employees efforts to use energy and resources more efficiently. We continue to monitor and control our water consumption to ensure efficient use of water resources. We get our electricity and water requirements from the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) on rental basis, however we engage in all possibilities to reduce these rental charges to contribute to our carbon footprint management.

Installing energy-savers, light sensors and splitting the air-conditioning controls wherever possible have enabled us to manage significant amount of electricity. Similarly, spreading awareness on water use, regular maintenance of taps and flush systems and other related initiatives help us manage our water consumption. We are committed to ensuring that all our existing as well as new buildings and offices will be registered for LEED certification."

Recycling & Waste Management - AlGrass
"As part of the “Al Grass” initiative, which is a challenging Socio-Environment project aiming to promote volunteerism and participation through Reduced consumption of resources; Recycling of these resources; Managing wastes, Observing contribution to carbon footprint and finally Promoting greenery, around 3,000 employees at Dubai Customs are committed to replace their desk trash bins with recycling containers and boxes to be distributed and placed at different department and sections throughout the organization. This is a first of its kind campaign by a government organization, which aims to promote volunteerism, community engagement and environment protection.

In continuation to the Al Grass Recycling campaign, a second phase was also launched at the end of 2012 which comes in-line with our strategy of using greener and cleaner technologies. This initiative is planned and developed by the DC IT Department with an aim to introduce a uniform and consistent approach to the allocation, access and usage of printers in order to provide a more cost effective, flexible and reliable solution and at the same time minimize the environmental impact of the organization. The objective of this campaign is to introduce and implement a habitual culture of saving papers and printer-ink among all employees within the organization. This can be done by simply avoiding unnecessary printing, copying and promoting electronic filing. All policies, procedures and rules of this campaign have been designed keeping in mind our business requirements, operational flexibility and manageable controls."
