Landmark Group accelerates its journey towards becoming a leading solar-powered retailer

Regional retail conglomerate Landmark Group has extended its partnership with SirajPower, a provider of distributed solar energy in the GCC region, with an aim to increase its solar capacity. Currently the Group has a solar capacity of 8.3MWp, with 67% of it facilitated by SirajPower, and has been awarded an additional 2.1 MWp of solar rooftop and carport systems across four prominent sites in the UAE.

The total solar capacity will be distributed among various locations including Oasis Mall in Dubai and Sharjah, as well as two other sites in Al Quoz and JAFZA. This initiative will double the number of locations and increase the solar capacity by 25%. By deploying solar panels at these newly added locations Landmark Group expects to offset approximately 2,485 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

The above projects are scheduled to be commissioned by the end of this year and will make Landmark Group one of the largest solar-powered retailers in the region with 17.4GWh annual green energy production across eight locations in the UAE.

“We believe in the power of sustainable practices to create a better future for our planet. By partnering with SirajPower to further expand our clean energy base, we are taking meaningful steps towards achieving our sustainability goals,” said Rajesh Garg, Group Chief Financial Officer of Landmark Retail.

With this expansion Landmark Group is continuing to lead the way in sustainable practices within the retail and hospitality sectors, aligning with the UAE’s sustainability agenda and reinforcing its dedication to reducing carbon emissions and utilising energy more sustainably. The Group is also planning to implement similar sustainable energy initiatives in the other GCC countries further extending its commitment to creating a greener future across the region.
