ALP develops GCC’s first ‘zero carbon ready’ warehouse in KSA




Agility, a supply chain services, infrastructure and innovation company based in Kuwait, released its 2023 Sustainability Report, showing the company has made significant progress in environmental and social responsibility. Agility Logistics Parks (ALP)  demonstrated its commitment to energy efficiency, conservation and waste management in the Middle East and Africa by developing the GCC’s first “zero-carbon ready” warehouse in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and West Africa’s first zero-carbon ready warehouse in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire. Both facilities received EDGE Advanced “green building” certification.


Agility’s latest sustainability report highlights the company’s robust efforts in environmental stewardship, strategic infrastructure development, and commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The report outlines commitments by two of Agility’s largest businesses – Menzies Aviation and Tristar – to achieve net-zero emissions. Menzies and Tristar accounted for roughly 74% of Agility’s 2023 revenue. Menzies, which provides in-plane fueling and other ground services for commercial aviation, is playing a key role in aviation industry decarbonization. It is helping to advance lower-carbon aviation by submitting its first net-zero targets to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), and aims to convert 25% of its motorized ground support equipment (GSE) to electric power by 2025.


Fuel logistics provider Tristar, meanwhile, has expanded its investment in solar energy at its Dubai headquarters, boosting its capacity to nearly 1mWh and eliminating emissions of approximately 650 tons of CO2 annually. Tristar has commissioned the first hybrid bunker barge in the UAE.
