Mechanism in cooperation with the UNDP, for both technology and competence

conceived under the directives of the Supreme Council of Energy.

simultaneously act as the Dubai-based stimulant to develop a Carbon Efficient
Economy, whilst developing carbon incentives for the Emirate’s key stakeholders.

DCCE Business Model
4. Asset Management
Clean Tech Fund. The DCCE will focus on identification of disruptive new clean
technologies, promoting migration towards low-carbon economy with key sectors:
Clean Power, Clean Transport, Energy Efficiency, Waste Recovery, Water treatment,
replacement refrigerants. Target technology transfer to region.
Project Finance Fund: Provision of finance to carbon-asset projects with exceptional
returns – direct equity based investments (majority), debt (minority).
DCCE Business Case
For compliance purposes, flying into the European Community as of 2012, Emirates
Airlines needs to offset its carbon levels that are imposed on their European routes.
Emirates Airlines needs to buy these credits, and would normally go to the global
trading market and purchase from brokers, funds, banks etc.
Dubai companies, such as DEWA, Dubal, etc. are generating these same credits and
selling them to these same traders whom are charging significant margins. However
with the DCCE in place DEWA, Dubal, etc. will sell these carbon credits to the DCCE
Emirates Airlines can then buy these carbon credits from DCCE at attractive rates
• Building competence and business volume for the DCCE
• Significantly better pricing for Emirates Airlines
• Money flows stay in the country
DCCE Set Up and Structure
• Public/Private Joint Stock Company – PJSC (Paid up Capital
AED 10.0 million)
• DCCE Founding Shareholders:
• Istidama
• Emirates Airlines
DCCE – Value Proposition….Why the DCCE….
• UNDP Partnership – ability to fast track projects (technical DD capability through
global network) and resource, prioritize project opportunities quickly.
• UNDP Relationship - DCCE, creating access to CDM Global Data enabling us to
