Our culture

Taking real action against climate change

Every day, our 5,600 employees go the extra mile to serve the energy needs of our customers, business partners and the societies that we are part of. We do so by developing, building and operating state-of-the-art renewable energy infrastructure assets, stepping in the forefront of the global energy transformation.

 

A united stand against climate change

Ørsted has transformed from being one of the most coal- and oil-intensive energy companies in Europe into being one of the greenest with a global leadership in offshore wind. Our transformation is driven by a vision to lead the energy transformation towards sustainable energy systems, taking a clear stand in the fight against climate change. At the same time, we’ve adapted our business model to be successful and resilient in a world that runs entirely on green energy. 

 

Shaping the renewable technologies of tomorrow

To be the frontrunner in the green energy transformation, we invest significantly in innovation and empower our employees to help shape the renewable energy technologies of the future. We cultivate a collaborative, dynamic and diverse work environment and encourage career-long learning and development so our people can realise their full potential.
