Uniting action on climate and biodiversity

How renewable energy can address both crises

Download the white paper

There is a new and necessary north star for renewable energy: to be a force for good on both climate and biodiversity. Ørsted is doing our part to deliver on this through our net-positive biodiversity ambition. Only if others act with us can we together deliver what is needed for people and planet.

This paper sets out in clear terms why it is essential we consider biodiversity in the build-out of renewable energy, and what steps we believe are needed to ensure we get this right. You can read about:

  • How biodiversity and climate change are interconnected
  • The four principles of a biodiversity-positive energy transition
  • The actions we're taking on biodiversity
  • Our call to action to policymakers, the energy industry, and environmental NGOs
