The CEO of Lootah Biofuels is Yousif Bin Saeed Al Lootah. A young and
enthusiastic CEO, Mr. Yousif Lootah oversees Lootah Biofuels’ daily operations
in the UAE and globally as well as the company’s strategic direction, growth,
and expansion.
With the intention of introducing and innovating sustainable solutions for the
long-term energy requirements of the UAE and beyond, Mr. Yousif Lootah
launched Lootah Biofuels. Prior to introducing Lootah Biofuels, Mr. Yousif was
actively involved in the sustainable initiatives by the S.S. Lootah Group such as
the Green Car Program which has seen a great progression since its inception,
starting from conversion of part of company fleet to Compressed Natural Gas
(CNG), followed by the use of Hybrid, Electric, Biodiesel and Solar vehicles in
recent years.
In the GCC market, Mr. Yousif Lootah seeks a target of 70% of transportation
coming from renewable and sustainable sources by 2025. To minimize the
carbon footprint of the transportation industry, he wants the United Arab
Emirates to be the first nation in the region to make the use of biofuels blends
mandatory in all public stations.
Many of the company’s ecological initiatives were the brainchild of Mr. Yousif.
Following the successful creation of biofuels from waste management, Mr.
Lootah recently went one step further and signed agreements with
educational institutions to raise awareness and provide training for the
region’s youth, motivating them to make small but impactful changes to their
daily lives and make a difference. Moreover, he’s actively spreading valuable
insights about circular economy solutions with the aim to promote greater
awareness and understanding about sustainable practices that align with the
principles of a circular economy.
