Ørsted commits to either reuse, recycle, or recover all of the wind turbine blades in its global portfolio of onshore and offshore wind farms upon decommissioning.
On Ørsted's Capital Markets Day on 2 June, the company announced its new commitment to either reuse, recycle, or recover all of the wind turbine blades in Ørsted's global portfolio of onshore and offshore wind farms upon decommissioning. The commitment comes as a part of Ørsted's new company strategy which includes an ambition to expand its leading sustainability position and as part of the work towards achieving a carbon-neutral footprint by 2040.
As a global sustainability leader with a strong commitment to protect biodiversity, Ørsted sets the ambition to deliver a net-positive biodiversity impact from all new renewable energy projects it commissions from 2030 at the latest. The ambition is part of the company’s new strategy.
Renewable energy leader Ørsted accelerates its global build-out of renewable energy and sets the ambition to reach approx. 50 GW of installed capacity by 2030. To support this ambitious build-out, the company plans to invest approx. DKK 350 billion in green energy from 2020 to 2027.
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, June 2, 2021 /3BL Media/ – Over the past decade, Ørsted has built a global market-leading position in renewable energy with a total of 12 GW of installed renewable capacity.
Renewable energy leader Ørsted is partnering on a project with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Denmark, to support marine biodiversity and the cod fish stock in Denmark’s Kattegat straits.
The project, known as “A helping hand to the seas”, aims to explore how biodiversity is affected by imbalances in local ecosystems and support the vulnerable cod fish stock in Denmark’s Kattegat straits.
The cod fish stock in the Kattegat is currently at a historically low point owing to reasons including climate change, overfishing, lack of oxygen in the waters, and habitat loss.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, December 8, 2020 /3BL Media/ - The score recognises actions to drive down carbon emissions across Ørsted’s entire carbon footprint, as well as transparent disclosure of financial impacts of climate risks in line with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
