Aster DM Healthcare announced it has signed an agreement with Emirates Electrical Engineering LLC, a member of Al Rostamani Group and a leading ESCO company of UAE, to install solar energy panels across 4 hospitals in UAE including Aster Hospitals in Mankhool, Qusais, Cedar and Medcare Hospital in Al Safa Dubai. To be implemented by Eurohealth Systems, the total solar power generation will help reduce carbon dioxide generation by 1774 metric tonnes annually.

According to the statement, the project is in alignment with Aster DM Healthcare’s global ESG (Environment, Social and Corporate Governance) policies through which the organisation is trying to build a sustainable future by defining a path that creates shared values benefitting the organisation, community and the environment across the 7 countries where it has a presence.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Ruler of Dubai, for a green economy which can support sustainable development. The installation of the solar energy panels at the four hospitals in UAE is just the beginning in our journey to make our facilities energy efficient and provide a greener environment to our patients that encourages health and well-being,” said Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare.
