DoT has adopted a corporate-wide Sustainability Policy in August 2011. The Sustainability Policy provides guidance and direction for DoT’s activities as a regulator, transport provider, employer, organization, and a community member incorporating sustainability elements that are in-line with Abu Dhabi’s 2030 Vision.
The DoT sustainability framework is a visual representation of our contribution towards the creation of an integrated and multimodal transport system that ultimately delivers three, Emirate level, sustainability outcomes. The framework is used to organize the management of sustainability by DoT and to measure the impact of the transport system on the Emirate as a whole.
To ensure effective management and implementation of sustainability at DoT, the Chairman created the Sustainability Management Working Team (SMWT), a cross-functional team composed of a number of DoT employees representing sections and divisions from within the organization.
The SMWT was created at the end of 2010 with the responsibility of:
Championing and embedding sustainability into DoT’s strategy, management systems and operations.
Identifying and supporting the identification of sustainability initiatives that will accelerate sustainability-related performance gains.
Ensuring implementation and a high level of sustainability performance, with the primary goal of a sustainable transport system.
Ensuring that DoT regularly reports publicly on its sustainability performance, maintains a meaningful dialogue and seeks to co-innovate with its stakeholders.
The team currently meets once a month and has committed to work together to create a more sustainable DoT and transport system for the people and environment of Abu Dhabi.
