IS COMMITTED TO MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT BY SUPPORTING UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

At Desert Technologies, we believe that private enterprise must be at the forefront of promoting sustainable economic development. As a Renewable Energy and Clean Water company with major operations in developing and emerging markets, dt was founded to address the goals of sustainable development and impact investment. We work in less developed nations providing access to energy and clean water, as well as providing job opportunities and vocational training. Our belief in sustainability applies to all our stakeholders. Our projects must be sustainable for our clients, sustainable for the environment and communities in which the projects are located, sustainable for our employees and sustainable for our shareholders.

11

Sustainable Cities and Communities

Through our Mini-grids, Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure, Energy Efficiency and rooftop solar products, dt is helping to build Cities that are cleaner, safer and better to live in, as well as more productive economically.

12

Responsible Production and Consumption

dt is currently developing mini-grid systems that reuse lithium-ion batteries, whether from cars or from computers, to build economic and efficient mini-grid and off-grid solar systems in Africa. Recycle, and efficient use of resources is a priority at dt.

13

Climate Action

Energy production and use account for two- thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore diversifying our sources of energy towards renewables and away from fossil fuels must be a priority to meet the COP 21 goals. Ever cheaper energy storage, reducing the intermittency of Wind and Solar, lets us aspire to ever great % of renewables among our generation sources.

Partnership for Goals

dt is targeting to create a successful sustainable development agenda that requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. These inclusive partnerships built upon principles, values, a shared vision, and shared goals that place people and the planet at the center, are needed at the global, regional, national and local level.
