Vestas ranked the most sustainable company in the world 2022
In January 2022, Vestas was named the most sustainable company in the world in the 18th annual Global 100 ranking published by Corporate Knights.
The ranking is based on a detailed assessment of 6,914 publicly listed companies, each with more than US$ 1 billion in revenue, where performance across a range of sustainability metrics is evaluated. The index revealed circularity and ambitious carbon emissions reduction goals as highly prevalent amongst high performers.
The ranking is a testament to both our existing achievements, and our ongoing progress in ensuring Sustainability in Everything We Do.
We are honored and humbled to be recognized as the most sustainable company in the world by Corporate Knights and are looking forward to continuing the work towards a more sustainable future, for generations to come.
Sustainability in Everything We Do
How do we define sustainability?
Sustainability at Vestas means reducing or eliminating negative environmental and social impacts, as well as maximising the value that our business and products provide for our customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers, local communities, and the planet at large. It also means upholding sustainability in governance structures. We believe these efforts will help to elevate the standards of our industry as a whole. In 2020 we have launched our Sustainability Strategy - Sustainability in Everything We Do.
Since the launch the Sustainability Strategy has elevated sustainability performance across several areas. We have mobilized our entire organization around several key sustainability activities. Ongoing sustainability initiatives include circular product design initiatives, reducing CO2 emissions and waste production from manufacturing, alignment of sustainability goals with strategic suppliers and replacing all combustion vehicles with electric vehicles in Service, as well as benefit cars.
