Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has received the British Standards Institution (BSI) Kitemark for Innovation, making it the first government organisation to receive this certificate at a global level.

This new milestone reinforces its excellence in innovation and cements its global leadership.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, expressed his pride at this new global achievement, which underlines DEWA’s excellence and continuous efforts to advance the utility sector by adopting innovation as a solid organisational approach.

BSI awards Kitemark certificates to pioneering organisations that demonstrate their innovation credentials and ensure the actual value of innovation in terms of ROI. The evaluation is based on the intended outcomes of innovation.

The certification is based on the international standard for Innovation Management, ISO 56002. In 2019, DEWA was awarded the ISO 56002: 2019 in Innovation Management, becoming the first organisation in the world to receive this certificate.
