Ørsted has three decades of experience in renewable energy production and is today among the world’s leading renewable energy companies with a broad range of green energy solutions to help decarbonise the world’s energy systems to limit global warming.

 

In Ørsted, we have a vision to create a world that runs entirely on green energy. The production and use of fossil fuels account for nearly 75% of global carbon emissions. To limit climate change and power the world sustainably, we must drastically accelerate the transformation of the world’s energy systems from fossil fuels to renewables.

 

Our green transformation

 

We have transformed from a fossil-fuel based energy company to a green energy company in a little more than a decade by investing significantly in renewables. Since 2006, we have reduced our CO2 emissions by 86%. By 2023 we will be completely coal-free and we are on track to be carbon neutral in energy generation and operations by 2025. We also want to cut energy trading and supply chain emissions in half by 2032 and have set a target to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040. We have also been ranked the most sustainable energy company in the world four years running by Corporate Knight’s 2022 Global 100 index of the world’s most sustainable corporations.
