DEWA has achieved outstanding results through the Sustainability Culture Indicator achieving 88.7% in 2016, an increase of 3.7% over the previous year and exceeding the global average. The Sustainability Culture Indicator is conducted annually by organisations to measure their ability to instil a culture of sustainability among the business community, establish a culture of sustainability among employees, and in adherence with the directives of the wise leadership, and the national objective to build a sustainable future.

The survey witnessed the participation of over 3,126 employees from different sectors. The results showed a positive increase across all individual and organisational levels in the areas of commitment, leadership, and sustainability. This reflects DEWA’s efforts throughout the year, to improve institutional performance, and implement a culture of sustainability among employees while enhancing their abilities as per the highest international standards.

“We are proud of the outstanding results achieved by DEWA in the Sustainability Culture Index, which reflects our commitment to the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to promote a culture of sustainability, achieve leadership, and support national efforts to enhance sustainable development and conserve natural resources, to protect the environment and shift closer towards establishing a green economy,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

The indicator offers credible, transparent, and in-depth results, based on a reliable methodology. This has enabled us to identify the level of awareness that has been adopted among employees regarding sustainability. The results achieved exceed the average results attained from other organisations that have completed the survey. This reflects a high level of awareness among employees regarding sustainability, as well as their commitment towards achieving it,” added Al Tayer.

“These outstanding results reflect DEWA’s efforts to improve its organisational performance, and enhance the capabilities of employees to effectively contribute towards achieving sustainability. This supports the UAE Vision 2021 and the Dubai Plan 2021, to preserve the environment, increase reliance on clean energy sources, and transform Dubai into a smart and sustainable city with resources that are clean, healthy, and sustainable,” concluded Al Tayer.

The Sustainability Culture Indicator is based on the principles of achieving sustainability, strategic commitment, innovation in the field of sustainability, personal commitment, the ability to make a difference, training, and raising awareness regarding sustainability.
