General – Renewable Electricity
Ørsted has set a clear expectation for all suppliers to use 100 % renewable electricity by 2025, becoming the first energy company in the world to do so.
The commitment builds on learnings from Ørsted’s existing supply chain decarbonisation program, first established in 2020, and supports the company’s industry-first science-based 2040 net-zero target.
The company has reduced its scope 1 and 2 emission intensity by 87 % since 2006 and is well on track to become carbon-neutral in its own energy generation and operations by 2025.
Ørsted continues its large-scale build-out of renewable energy and is fully committed to science-aligned climate action. That’s why Ørsted is working to address suppliers’ emissions linked to component manufacturing, transportation, installation, and operation of renewable energy assets as the next frontier in its decarbonisation endeavour.
To reach its targets, Ørsted relies on collaboration across the supply chain and the success of its suppliers. The company is now taking the step to extend its 100 % renewable electricity target from its strategic suppliers to all suppliers.
This means that Ørsted now expects all its suppliers to exclusively use electricity from renewable energy sources when providing products or services to Ørsted by 2025 at the latest.
