Dubai, U.A.E., 29 June 2021 – DAE Capital, the global aircraft leasing division of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) Ltd, today publishes its inaugural environmental, social, and governance – ESG – Report for the financial year ended December 31, 2020, which has been prepared under the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standard. The report can be found here, or on the ESG section of our website.
Commenting on the report, Firoz Tarapore, Chief Executive Officer of DAE, stated, “over the past year, my team and I have strengthened our engagement with our stakeholders on ESG issues; their feedback has helped inform and guide DAE in writing this report. In our ESG Report, we have laid out our targets, and we will be holding ourselves accountable to those targets over the coming years.
“Our customers, investors, and shareholders are increasingly recognizing their responsibility to be a part of the global transition to a low carbon economy, and we need to act now.
