Sustainability – clean energy, economic growth, capacity building


The UAE has a legacy of sustainability, pioneered by our nation’s founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. His vision for the UAE embodied the sustainable development of our economy, our society and our environment.

The Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 builds on this legacy, providing a sustainable growth strategy that focuses on development across five priority areas including our economy, social and human resources, infrastructure and the environment; while optimizing government operations to deliver a thriving, diversified and dynamic economy and community.

Nuclear energy will be a critical driver of this sustainable growth. Through the development of a peaceful nuclear energy program, our nation stands to gain from the considerable benefits this new energy source will bring: clean and abundant electricity to power new industries and provide energy security; direct economic growth from a new, high-technology industry; and the development of our best and brightest Emirati talent to ensure a highly skilled and indigenous workforce who will lead this industry for decades to come.

These three focus areas form the foundation of ENEC’s sustainability program – clean energy provision, economic growth and capacity building.

These pillars of sustainability are at the heart of our daily operations at ENEC, and span the highest level of our business planning to individual KPIs. Underpinning this program are our corporate values – safety, integrity, transparency and efficiency – which guide our work each and every day.

As our organization continues to grow, we remain committed to the evolution and development of our sustainability program, to ensure we continue to meet and respond to the needs of the community, the environment, and the nation.
