Why Energy Saving will no longer be a CSR?


Dear Professional
Here are some hard observations:

  • An average person in UAE consumes 40% more electricity than Singapore, 84% more than European Union and 4 to 5 times more than MENA and World average.
  • An average person in the UAE contributes to highest CO2 in the world, 30% more than an average person in the USA, 3 to 4 times that of a person in the EU, in Singapore or in the MENA region.  The average world citizen contributes just 20% of an average soul in the UAE.
  • The per capita energy consumption in the UAE is higher than anywhere in the world.

These observations are based on published data by World Bank for the year 2009

Should this bother us?
Whether at an individual or corporate level, when the Energy is fairly subsidized in the country? According to International Energy Agency, the UAE subsidizes every human being in the country by $2,500, the 2nd highest subsidy in the world after Kuwait.

Yes, for two reasons:

  1. Already with the subsidy, the electricity bills are one of the single largest expenses in majority of house and commercial establishments. A research by TPS Management consultants to be released soon, could depict the exact position from amongst 500 large users.
  2. The subsidies will not last long. And even if they do, whether under the high cost of subsidy or international pressure to reduce the Carbon footprint, one thing that is sure is that the Energy rates will not come down. Speaking at World Energy conference in Abu Dhabi, the French president said “If we don’t act, if we don’t do anything, if we don’t invest anything, we can be sure that we will have a catastrophe very soon.

That’s when the Energy Saving will no longer be just a CSR; it will be a business compulsion!
