RAS AL KHAIMAH, 25th October, 2023 (WAM) — Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) has welcomed an innovative climate technology company – Carbon Alert. A first-of-its-kind business in the Northern Emirates, the company is focused on reducing global carbon emissions by providing high-quality carbon credits to regulated markets.
RAKEZ Group CEO Ramy Jallad, Carbon Alert Co-Founder Jacobus Merksteijn, and RAKEZ strategic advisor from Qadvisory Ayman Al Yamani, were present at the signing ceremony held at Compass Coworking Centre in Ras Al Khaimah to mark the company’s registration.
Jallad said that it’s essential that organisations and individuals adopt and promote environmentally sustainable practices and support the UAE’s initiatives to address climate change and other related issues.
“The company has joined our ecosystem at a perfect time as the UAE is set to host COP28, where it can present its solutions. Through this platform, they can approach international firms that wish to do their part in reducing carbon footprints and contribute to the global mission of achieving net zero emissions by 2050,” he added.
Merksteijn said that Carbon Alert will offer high quality, high additionality carbon credits from selected trusted projects.
“RAKEZ is the ideal base for us as it’s centrally located between the European, American and Asian timezones suitable for international trade. Setting up here was very smooth and efficient, with the team prioritising the entire process. It’s not just the quick set-up timelines; they understood our unique requirements and flexibly accommodated everything needed to help us get up and running,” he added.
