Sustainability Ratings

At Vestas we welcome the increased focus on and need for transparent ESG ratings asked for by our stakeholders, especially investors and customers. At the same time, we see a growing demand for providing the needed data and have therefore implemented a yearly evaluation process to determine which ratings to support in the coming year.
