ESG ratings and reporting

Our reports

Get an overview of our financial, ESG and sustainability performance by downloading our reports.


We review progress in our work in sustainability through a reporting process that culminates in the annual Sustainability Report. Here we describe how Ørsted as a business contributes to addressing some of the challenges faced by society and that are material to our business. The sustainability report also constitutes our reporting to the UN Global Compact. Due to our many activities in the UK, we provide a separate report on our contribution to UK society.

The Annual Report presents both financial and sustainability performance, while the ESG performance report provides the complete set of Ørsted's environment, social and governance indicators.
