Committed to Sustainability

Environment social and governance values are a thread that run through the heart of our corporate strategy. As a National low-carbon champion and a key decarbonization enabler in the UAE our emissions reduction goals represent a credible step towards achieving net zero and are a demonstration of our commitment to catalyzing the energy transition. We are well on the way to achieving our medium and long-term sustainability ambitions while enabling wider decarbonization across the UAE economy. At TAQA we are driven by a commitment to aligning our strategy with sustainable development, climate action and a just energy transition for all.
