Chalhoub Group installs solar panels


June 27, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

Middle Eastern luxury retailer, Chalhoub Group has completed the installation of over 6,200 solar panels at both its head office and main warehouse in Jebel Ali Free Zone in the UAE. The solar panels installation is set to cut 1,750 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year and the system size is 2,142 kWp.

Chalhoub Group partnered with Enviromena – one of the leading providers of transformative energy solutions in the Middle East and Africa – to supply solar power to its offices. The company provided full scope of services using only Tier-1 components and the highest quality standard.

“Protecting the environment is a key pillar of our sustainability strategy; we are committed to reduce our carbon footprint across our operations and involve our people in our environmental programmes. We are measuring, monitoring and controlling our natural resources consumption to progress towards our 2020 commitments. Shifting to renewable energy offers us an opportunity to further decrease our environmental impact and build the way to a more sustainable future,” said Florence Bulte, head of sustainable engagement at Chalhoub Group.

“At Chalhoub Group, we are constantly seeking methods to improve our operations and to minimize the negative environmental impact of structures and buildings by developing spaces efficiently, moderation in the use of materials, reducing waste over the lifecycle of a building, and controlling usage of energy and water,” added Gilbert Boustany, general manager – 3D design decoration and display at Chalhoub Group.

By 2020, Chalhoub Group’s target is to install this technology in other locations in the UAE and the region as part of its mission to manage natural resources wisely and transition to renewable energy.

“As a member of the United Nations Global Compact, we are committed to ensure that the four sustainability pillars – People, Partners, Planet and Impact – are embedded into the core of our business as they provide a robust framework for strong performance and give a clear vision for the future. We continue to take actions to reduce our ecological footprint and installing solar panels is in line with our mission to shift to renewable energy and enhance our overall environmental impact,” concluded Chalhoub Group CEO, Patrick Chalhoub.
