Over 90 per cent of the recycled waste water which is treated at the dip sewage treatment plant (stp) is used for irrigation and landscaping purposes within dip. over the last 10 years dip has helped save 1.48 million truck trips off the roads to dispose the sewage to nearby stps with the total carbon dioxide emissions reduction through this initiative being 777913 tonnes.


Dip’s integrated sustainable approach has made it one of the most environent friendly developments in dubai. over the last 10 years dip reduced over 1.25 million tonnes of carbon dioxide through its energy-efficient sustainability programme with plans to reduce it further in the coming years.


Dip’s sustainable environmental approach also optimises the mobility of people and reduces the average trip distance to commute to work or to go to school. this has avoided 20000 car commutes on a daily basis outside the dip premises which is equivalent to 311475 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions reduction.


Omar mesmar general manager of dip said: “since our incorporation in 1997 we have remained committed to sustainable practices that benefit the dip community. dip is one of the largest business and residential communities in the middle east and our contribution to sustainability has been significant year-on-year. we have consistently raised the benchmark to reach greater heights in our sustainability efforts.”
