M42, a global tech-enabled health company headquartered in Abu Dhabi, has joined forces with Siemens to boost energy efficiency across the UAE healthcare sector. The partnership will audit M24’s health facilities for energy efficiency and explore digitization of the infrastructure.
Decarbonizing infrastructure is one part of M42’s two-fold approach to reducing its carbon footprint. It also includes using preventative tech-enabled health solutions to reduce the number of patients required to visit such energy-intensive facilities.
Our collaboration with Siemens demonstrates our dedication to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
Mark McGourty, Group Chief Operating Officer of M42
The project’s initial phase involves a comprehensive energy efficiency audit of the healthcare facilities operated by M42 across the UAE. These audits are designed to identify opportunities for substantial energy savings and examine means for carbon emission reductions.
The partnership will leverage the Siemens Xcelerator platform, setting a new industry standard for healthcare sustainability. By integrating innovative technologies, M42 and Siemens are determined to make a positive environmental and societal impact.
The first audit, conducted in late November, found that one of M42’s healthcare facilities could achieve significant savings in energy costs through heating, ventilation, and air conditioning retrofits and through the integration of space management systems.
