Green financing


Since 2017, all new Ørsted bonds have been issued in a green format, and we will continue to deploy green financing going forward. Outstanding green bonds currently account for more than half of Ørsted’s total bond portfolio.

Our ‘Green finance framework’ has been developed in alignment with ICMA’s Green Bond Principles 2018 and LMA/APLMA/LSTA’s Green Loan Principles 2018, and has received the highest possible grading – a dark green shading – from CICERO Shades of Green. Ørsted’s Green finance framework includes green bonds, green loans and other types of debt instruments to finance green eligible projects.

Our framework provides the basis of all allocations and impact reporting in our annual ‘Green bond impact report' which reports on allocated proceeds and project impacts in the form of avoided emissions, energy generated, and people powered from the projects. 

With our green financing, we support progress towards the Paris Agreement and aspire to have a transformative impact on the UN Sustainable Development Goals #7 on affordable and clean energy and #13 on climate action
