Fourteen Dubai Government entities, implementing the Dubai Paperless Strategy 2021, have successfully reduced their consumption of paper. The ultimate aim is to digitise all internal and external government and consumer transactions, rendering them all 100% paperless.

The programme stands to economise over one billion pieces of paper used by Dubai Government every year, saving 9,173 trees. It will additionally save Dubai’s residents and visitors over AED40 million and 125 million hours a year that would have been spent on paper transactions.
