Carbon-neutral supply chain programme is off to a strong start
Renewable energy technologies generate power with zero carbon emissions, but emissions from their supply chains still remain. We’re closely engaging with our suppliers to reduce carbon emissions and build more sustainable supply chains.
Today, most of our supply chain emissions come from offshore wind. On average, material extraction, manufacturing, transport, and installation account for 90 % of the total lifecycle emissions of an Ørsted offshore wind farm. This is primarily due to carbon-intensive processes needed to manufacture materials for wind turbines and foundations, as well as the fossil fuels used by vessels supporting the installation of our farms.
