Our “Blue Carbon” project, a pioneer for the region in partnership with Environmental Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD), is a mangrove habitat restoration project using drone technology. The purpose is to ensure the restoration of the region’s natural biodiversity, whilst also addressing our climate actions.
With innovative custom built drone technology, we will be able to restore the mangroves by planting approximately 10,000 seeds within a lagoon in Mirfa, Abu Dhabi, which is in close proximity to our gas and desalination operations in Mirfa. Through traditional planting methods, this would have taken years and done within a period of a few months. This highlights how technology can be used efficiently for the benefits of the environment.
ENGIE is committed to a low carbon transition, and through natural based solutions its positively contributing to the sustainable development goals. Projects such as the Blue Carbon project are fully aligned with ENGIE’s decarbonization pathway as it uses scientific expertise to provide innovative solutions to offset CO2 emissions.
