Swiss-UAE partnership for carbon offsets

myclimate has forged a partnership with the leading Middle East facilities management company Farnek Avireal to help private sector companies reduce their environmental impact.

"This initiative complements the Ecological Footprint Programme of the United Arab Emirates, the aim of which is to develop environmentally friendly policies, reduce the UAE’s carbon footprint and move towards a sustainable future", said Marcus Oberlin, General Manager of Farnek Avireal Middle East.

Farnek Avireal, in partnership with the myclimate non-profit foundation of Switzerland, will provide consultancy, advisory and carbon management services to help UAE companies reduce their environmental impact by compensation carbon emissions and reducing or, where possible, replacing their use of fossil fuels.

Speaking about regional opportunities and their partnership with Farnek Avireal, René Estermann, CEO, myclimate, said, "In Farnek Avireal we have found a partner that we consider to be the market leading consultant in the UAE for carbon reduction and sustainability."

Farnek Avireal has consolidated its market position by helping private sector companies reduce their environmental impact with efficient monitoring of energy use and has a licensing agreement with Green Globe International, the certification label for the tourism and hospitality industry covering properties throughout the Middle East.
