A cornerstone of our culture is the belief in equal rights and opportunities. To us, being respected and valued for who you are is a fundamental right. Therefore, we want to ensure an inclusive workplace for all employees.
A prerequisite for creating a culture that embraces diversity is that our employees feel acknowledged and included, regardless of their individual background and personal characteristics.
As a company, we want our workforce to reflect the societies we are part of — including gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, and age.
Diversity beyond gender
Diversity and inclusion matters are multifaceted by nature and include many other important aspects beyond gender. In 2018, Ørsted sponsored Copenhagen Pride to reinforce our support for diversity beyond gender and to celebrate diversity and inclusion within our own company.
We also joined more than 200 of the world’s largest companies expressing support for the UN LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business.

Waste is a resource for green energy
In Ørsted we see waste as a valuable resource when the organic content can be turned into biogas, which is a green alternative to natural gas.
Taking care of the rich diversity of life on Earth
All energy infrastructure is built in a unique environment where we have to do our utmost to protect the natural ecosystems. It is central that we manage environmental impacts on these ecosystems well to obtain permission to build wind farms.
Cyber security is a social responsibility
Energy is vital for all parts of society, but increasingly, critical infrastructure such as energy supply is threatened by cyber espionage, cybercrime and hackers.
