At Ørsted we understand that businesses have a crucial role to play in combatting climate change and as a result, sustainability has risen up the board room agenda dramatically in recent years. We are helping businesses make greener energy choices by providing solutions ranging from green gas/power supply and energy advice through to long term wind backed Corporate Power Purchasing Agreements and trading services. Our aim is to help businesses reduce their organisation’s carbon footprint cost effectively, while boosting their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials.
Our own vision is to create a world that runs entirely on green energy, and to realise this vision, we’ve made a green transformation ourselves. Ørsted will be coal free by 2023, with a goal to be essentially carbon free by 2025. As the global leader in offshore wind, we currently power more than 12 million people, and we aim to up this figure to more than 50 million people by 2030. The UK is our biggest offshore wind market with eleven wind farms already operating. We’ve invested £8 billion building offshore wind farms in the UK and we are investing a further £4 billion by 2020. We’ll continue to continue to contribute to sustainable growth and development, driving a green energy future for us all.
