Climate change is one of the biggest challenges for life on Earth. Today, the world mainly runs on fossil fuels. We need to transform the way we power the world; from black to green energy.
At Ørsted, our vision is a world that runs entirely on green energy. We want to revolutionise the way we power people by developing green, independent and economically viable energy systems. By doing so, we create value for the societies that we’re a part of and for all our stakeholders.
We’re headquartered in Denmark, 50.1% owned by the Danish State and our shares are listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen (ORSTED). We employ over 6,500 people who collaborate with our partners to revolutionise the way we power people through innovative energy solutions and real action.
We’ve taken our name after Hans Christian Ørsted, one of Denmark’s best-known scientists and innovators. Through his curiosity, dedication and interest in nature, he discovered electromagnetism in 1820, helping to lay the scientific foundation for how power is generated today. These qualities of Hans Christian Ørsted are just what we need to truly revolutionise the way we power people.
