‘Dubai Can’ Gains High Popularity According to Results

'Dubai Can’, the citywide sustainability movement, in February 2022, has generated significant results in line with World Water Day.

One month since the launch of the sustainability campaign on 15th February 2022, in collaboration with valued industry stakeholders and partners, the initiative has already resulted in a reduction in usage of the equivalent of more than 234,000 500 ml single-use plastic water bottles, with over 117,000 litres of water consumed from ‘Dubai Can’ water fountains across the city.

‘Dubai Can’ has also announced that five new water fountains have been unveiled at popular destinations and public parks to coincide with World Water Day, taking the number of Dubai Can water fountains in operation across the city to 39. The new fountains have been installed at leading neighbourhoods, including Dubai Beaches Jumeirah 2 and Sunset Beach, leisure and retail destination JBR, as well as green spaces such as Al Safa Park and Mushrif National Park.

Dubai Can is now well on track to meet the pledge of installing more than 50 fountains across the city by December 2022, which will further highlight Dubai’s position as a global liveability hub, in line with the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan.

Encouraging UAE residents to actively reduce the usage of single-use plastic water bottles, ‘Dubai Can’ motivates communities, businesses, residents and visitors to undertake simple changes, such as using refillable water bottles and public water stations and installing water filters in their homes, offices and schools.
