Aster DM Healthcare, one of the largest integrated healthcare provider in the GCC and India, 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 – 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.

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. Over the years Aster has incorporated GRI and Dow Jones sustainability index into its operations to fulfill its commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goals with Climate Action being one of the 8 goals being supported.

“While being wholly devoted to the service of people and the community, we also remain committed to our environmental initiatives. In India, many of our hospitals have already undertaken multiple initiatives to conserve water and electricity and with this initiative we stand united with the vision of H. H. 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 4 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 Ms. Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare. 

“We are glad to partner with Emirates Electrical Engineering LLC in the implementation of this project which will not only ensure energy conversation but also reduce emission of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide which has a detrimental impact on the environment,” added Mr. Hanie Sathar, Director, Eurohealth Systems.

“The Al Rostamani Group owned Emirates Electrical Engineering has been serving UAE Electrical power sector for the last 35 years. We are proud to associate with Aster DM Healthcare to pave a green way towards a sustainable future by harnessing the solar energy. EEE spares no efforts in delivering high performing solar power plants to the commercial and industrial sectors in UAE,” added Mr. Prabash Manthara, General Manager, Emirates Electrical Engineering LLC.
