Toronto-based Corporate Knights analysed more than 7,500 companies, mainly from the industrials, financial IT, consumer and health care sectors, against their global industry peers to search for the most sustanable corporations in the world. Ørsted is the fourth most sustainable company in the overall Global 100 index, making it the most sustainable energy company in the index. Participating countries come from 21 countries, mainly in North America and Western Europe.

According to Corporate Knights, Ørsted performs particularly well in the ranking because a high share of the company's revenues is earned from products or services that have environmental or well-defined social benefits.

"Climate change is one of the defining challenges of our time. We must dramatically accelerate the transformation of the world's energy systems from fossil fuels to renewables to help protect our planet for future generations," says Henrik Poulsen, CEO of Ørsted. "At Ørsted, we have reduced our carbon emissions from our energy production by 67% over the past decade towards our vision of a world that runs entirely on green energy. Being ranked among the world's most sustainable companies makes us both humble and proud and encourages us to pursue our global investments in sustainable energy."
