A Look at Biodiversity Restoration and Renewable Energy in the Ocean
The energy transition must go hand-in-hand with restoring biodiversity and we are working with ecology experts to make it happen. Go to https://orsted.com/nature to find out more.
The ocean can play an important role in helping meet urgent global climate goals. We can harness this potential by restoring ocean health and marine biodiversity. Can this be done while also speeding-up growth in renewable energy? The answer for us at Ørsted is yes. We are working to create net-positive impact on biodiversity with every new renewable energy project we commission from 2030. Together with leading ecology experts we are finding the best ways to restore marine biodiversity.
The Ørsted vision is a world that runs entirely on green energy. Ørsted develops, constructs, and operates offshore and onshore wind farms, solar farms, energy storage facilities, renewable hydrogen and green fuels facilities, and bioenergy plants. Ørsted is the only energy company in the world with a science-based net-zero emissions target as validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Ørsted is recognised on the CDP Climate Change A List as a global leader on climate action.
