Middle East business conglomerate Al-Futtaim Group has announced it is the Strategic e-Mobility Partner of the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) at Expo City Dubai.

Al-Futtaim Automotive, one of the major divisions of the Al-Futtaim Group, says it has an ambition to deliver 50% new energy vehicles (NEVs) and install 10% of the charging stations in the UAE by 2030.

Paul Willis, President of Al-Futtaim Automotive, said: “We have to take radical action to tackle the climate crisis, especially within the automotive sector, as surface transportation is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.”

Omar Al Futtaim, Vice Chairman and CEO of Al-Futtaim Group, said: “The future of business is inextricably linked with the future of our planet.”

As part of the strategic partnership, Al-Futtaim Group will deliver a fleet of 370 electrified passenger cars, sports utility vehicles (SUV), and buses to be utilised for COP28.

The company will install its own Charge2Moov electric charging stations for the event.
