Our green transformation in figures

At DONG Energy, we want to lead the green transformation, while operating a sustainable business, which is respectful of society, the environment and people.That is why we have spent the past decade on the transformation to green energy. We are not quite there yet. But we are well on our way.

Here you can explore our story in figures.

Greener energy for millions of people

We build offshore wind farms and replace coal with sustainable biomass at our power stations. The result is greener power and heat for millions of people.

Our customers get increasingly clean energy

When we produce more green energy, we emit less CO21. In Denmark, we accounted for more than half of the country's CO2 reduction from 2006 to 2014.

 CO2 in million tonnes: DONG Energy's total CO2 emissions.

An increasingly global company

Our roots are Danish, but we take part in the green transformation in several other countries as well. In particular in the UK and Germany, we build and run offshore wind farms. Therefore, we have an increasing number of employees in these countries. We have also opened offices in the US and in Taiwan where we have plans to build offshore wind farms.

A safe workplace

Sustainability is a lot more than transitioning to green energy. It is also a matter of taking good care of our employees and suppliers working at our sites. We will continue to improve our safety, because we want the green transformation to happen in a safe way.

Responsible business partners

We have more than 22,000 business partners around the globe. Operating a sustainable business also means that our business partners must comply with international standards for human and labour rights, environment and anti-corruption.

 

We continuously work to help our partners comply with the standards. We perform analyses and assessments of our partners and require that they improve on certain aspects where necessary.
