Our strategy

Green energy in a sustainable way


The pursuit of our vision to create a world that runs entirely on green energy must take place sustainably. Through our sustainability strategy, we advance our positive contributions to society and minimise potential adverse impacts.


Ørsted and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

At Ørsted, our entire business is focused on addressing the climate emergency, the most pressing societal challenge of our time.

We impact many SGDs and our core positive contribution to SDGs 7 and 13. We also impact SDGs 3, 5, 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 16 through our sustainability programmes.
