Our green transformation

Our progress in numbers

In Ørsted, we have a vision to create a world that runs entirely on green energy. Fossil fuels still make up over 80% of global energy consumption. To limit climate change and to power the world sustainably, we must drastically accelerate the transformation of the world’s energy systems from black to green. Over the past decade, we have transformed from a black to a green energy company by investing 165 billion DKK in renewables and increasing the share of green energy in our energy generation to 75% by the end of 2018.

The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has never been higher. We have reduced our carbon emissions by 72% in comparison with 2006. By 2025, our heat and power generation will essentially be carbon-free. Our carbon emission reduction target for our energy generation means that we are 27 years ahead of the necessary reductions trajectory for our sector.
