The Company realizes that electricity and petroleum are non-renewable sources of fossil-based energy whose availability is increasingly limited. Therefore, AKR is committed to saving both energy sources in the Company buildings, and also all for transportation purposes outside the building. The Company has reduced the electricity consumption in the parent company and subsidiaries.
For example, we have changed our buildings’ ordinary lamps to energy-saving lamps, turn off any unnecessary lights and electrical devices, add more mirrored panels on buildings, etc. The Company also encourages energy-saving behavior in the parent company and subsidiaries. At JIIPE for example, the energy consumption was reduced by using sensors and timers. In addition, most of streetlights in the estate use solar panels. Energy-saving education is also important and has been initiated at all levels of management and staff.
