Farnek Supports UAE’s Decarbonisation Drive
Farnek, a leading UAE-based smart and green facilities management company, signed a Climate-Responsible Pledge to support the UAE’s decarbonisation drive in line with the UAE net zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative.
The signing ceremony took place at the Fifth National Dialogue for Climate Ambition (NDCA) in Abu Dhabi, hosted by The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE).

During the ceremony, Markus Oberlin, Farnek CEO, said: “By signing this pledge, we have committed to stepping up our efforts to combat climate change by measuring and reporting our greenhouse gas emissions transparently.
"We aim to develop ambitious but realistic science-based plans to reduce our carbon footprint and sharing these plans with the UAE government to contribute towards the UAE achieving its national net zero targets by 2050."
The UAE Climate-Responsible Companies Pledge is part of MOCCAE’s initiatives focused on scaling up the UAE’s climate action in response to the call of the Glasgow Climate Pact, an outcome of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, for countries to seek GHG emission reduction targets.
Farnek has already unveiled its roadmap to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Using 2021 as a baseline, Farnek consultants have identified the scope and boundaries to measure its carbon footprint accurately.
In 2031 Farnek’s objective is to decrease its emissions in these categories by up to 50%, and by 2048 its carbon footprint will have been cut by up to 90% overall.
