"Our products are powerful: not only can wind turbines significantly contribute to meeting the energy needs of the world, they are ranked as the single-most powerful means of generating energy in tackling climate change"
Neil Jones, SVP Global Quality, Safety & Environment at Vestas.
What environmental ambitions do we have?
At Vestas, our entire company is founded upon the desire to drive the energy transition. We produce best-in-class sustainable energy solutions and these are powerful drivers of environmental sustainability.
Our wind turbines are powerful because they ‘displace’ CO2 emissions that would otherwise be produced in generating electricity from fossil fuels. Avoiding the emission of CO2 is crucial to mitigate climate change. Already, our more than 132 GW of installed sustainable energy have displaced more than 1.3 billion tonnes of CO2. However, we are working to realise a world entirely powered by sustainable energy.
In 2020, we announced to be a carbon neutral company by 2030, without using carbon offsets. Read more about our strategy here.
We also announced a highly ambitious waste goal: To produce zero-waste wind turbines by 2040. Read more about our strategy here and click here to visit our blog article explaining this goal in more depth.
