Act now

At Ørsted, we want to help speed up green action globally.

Every person, business, investor and country can contribute to the systemic change required to meet the necessary carbon reduction.

We all have the responsibility to take action and show love for our home.

Our home is at risk

Love means nothing without action

Our shared home, planet Earth, is a beautiful and amazing place. A home where we’ve felt welcomed, safe, nourished and loved. But climate change is happening.

We are already starting to see the damaging impacts of global warming on our home. Scientists have concluded that an increase in global temperatures above 1.5 °C will have catastrophic effects and put the everyday life that we know at risk.

To ensure we do not reach this critical tipping point, the world must reduce carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050. The world is not on track to meet this target.

Together, we must show love for our home and speed up green action globally.

The hard facts

What do we know?

Energy from fossil fuels is the biggest contributor to climate change and accounts for 73% of global emissions.

To limit global warming to 1.5 °C and protect our home, the world must phase out using fossil fuels and focus on building-out green energy, which today only accounts for 11% of the world’s energy use.

This number must increase significantly to reduce global emissions by 50% by 2030.

It’s time to speed up green action

To speed up green action, we need to build-out green energy, such as solar and wind, globally and quickly. Individual lifestyle changes such as recycling and commuting to work on public transport are a great first step.

But, it’s not enough to meet the 50% by 2030 target, because emissions from fossil fuels are a by-product of almost everything you do; heating your home, turning on the oven, travelling by plane, making a call, and shopping online.

We need to change the energy system from relying on fossil fuels to using renewable, green energy. And, there is good news.

We already know the solutions needed to speed up green action and transition to green energy. Wind and solar power are now cheaper than power from fossil fuels and can become the backbone of the world’s energy system.

By building-out green technologies on a global scale and phasing out fossil fuels, we can create a world that runs entirely on green energy.

Together we can speed up green action


We must work together to speed up green action globally and reduce emissions by 50% by 2030. To meet this target, we need to phase out fossil fuels and create a world that runs entirely on green energy.

From our transformation story to yours

In ten years we have gone from one of the most fossil fuel intensive utilities in Europe to focusing entirely on green energy. Today we are the most sustainable energy company in the world, producing clean green energy for millions of people. We have reduced our emissions by 83% and by 2025 we will be virtually carbon neutral. It wasn’t easy to change, but it was necessary.


Reducing global emissions by 50% by 2030 will certainly not be a simple task. But it is necessary. And, just imagine what we could achieve in a decade if we all act together.

Green energy is cheaper than black energy

Green energy is a competitive and affordable energy solution. Today, it is cheaper to produce energy from newly constructed offshore wind farms than from newly built coal or gas-fired power plants. There is no excuse to not change from black to green energy

Offshore wind:

abundant in supply and opportunity

Today, offshore wind provides millions of with green energy. We built the world’s first offshore wind farm in 1991. Today, we have installed more than 1,200 offshore wind turbines across Europe, North America and Asia. With every new turbine, we are one step closer to creating a world that runs entirely on green energy.
