Apparel Group, one of the United Arab Emirates’ largest retailers, has announced the launch of a solar plant at its warehouse facilities in partnership with Siraj Power. The two MWp (Megawatt Power) solar plants installed at two Apparel Group warehouses in the Jebel Ali Free Zone are expected to provide more than 55 per cent of the company’s electricity consumption, saving 2,121 metric tonnes of CO2 during the first year of operation. It is claimed the annual savings achieved with this initiative could be equivalent to taking 450 cars off the roads and forms part of Apparel Group’s CSR and sustainability work.
