Denmark’s largest energy company Orsted has envisioned the use of 100% renewable electricity by all suppliers by 2025.
By doing so, it could be the first energy company in the world.
According to the company, it is moving ahead based on “learnings from Orsted’s existing supply chain decarbonisation programme, first established in 2020. It also supports the company’s industry-first science-based 2040 net-zero target.”
The Danish company aims to become carbon-neutral by 2025.
It further stated that it will “continue its large-scale build-out of renewable energy and is fully committed to science-aligned climate action.”
The company is in drive to extend its 100% renewable electricity target from its strategic suppliers to all suppliers, it stated. It has encouraged its suppliers to exclusively use electricity from renewable energy sources by 2025.
For this, the company will assist the suppliers with renewable electricity guidelines which could come up with the best solutions.
Orsted chief executive and group president Mads Nipper remarked, "We’ve transformed Orsted into a global leader in renewable energy and strongly believe that companies must demand science-aligned climate action from each other as well.”
