VESTAS, WORKING TO ADDRESS  THE BIG CHALLENGE OF THE 21ST CENTURY: CREATING A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

The fight against climate change is the biggest challenge facing us this century. Preserving the environment and building a sustainable future have become urgent tasks. Vestas, the global leader in sustainable energy solutions, reviews the challenges that this means for industry.

The company wants to lead the transition towards a carbon emissions-free world driven by renewable energy, sharing this intention with their clients and partners around the globe, and prioritising the objectives to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the recyclability of materials in every single activity. With more than 136 GW in global installations, Vestas has avoided the emission of 186 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

For Vestas, sustainability moreover represents a revolution of values: it represents increasing the diversity and inclusion of its workforce; improving the living conditions of the communities with which it works; and learning from the differences that make the company unique.
