Through our memberships, we help advance global sustainability agendas such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Ørsted and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our vision is a world that runs entirely on green energy. Through our sustainability strategy, we advance our positive contributions to society and minimise potential adverse impacts.

Ørsted’s business aspires to catalyse change to address the climate emergency, the most pressing societal challenge of our time. Our commitment to help create a world that runs entirely on green energy is our commitment to help limit climate change, which is central to progressing action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As a renewable energy company, we aspire to have a transformative impact on SDGs 7 and 13, while contributing to several others as well.
