Vestas is promising to cut its carbon footprint by 55 per cent by 2025 and hit 100 per cent by 2030, with no offsets.
The world's largest maker of wind turbines has said it will make “sustainability part of everything we do, taking full responsibility for the company’s environmental footprint”.
Its factories and offices are already powered by 100 per cent renewable electricity.
Unlike many other net zero strategies, which rely on the use of carbon offsets, Vestas has said it will deliver CO2 reductions solely through its own actions.
“We will be transitioning to electric vehicles for our company cars, will start replacing our global service vehicle fleet with renewable fuelled vehicles and will be exploring further steps to reduce heating and transport-related CO2 emissions from our operations,” said a company statement.
Vestas is also aiming to reduce CO2 emissions from its supply chain by 45 per cent per MWh generated by 2030. It says it will “actively seek” sustainability partnerships with their suppliers.
"To remain at the forefront of the energy transition we must do even more than today to meet the growing sustainability expectations of our customers, partners, investors and employees," said Vestas CEO Henrik Andersen.
"Our commitment to become carbon-neutral is the right thing to do for all of us. Together, we will not just make products that build a more sustainable planet, but we will do so in the most sustainable way possible."
Vestas has installed more than 108 GW of clean energy in 80 countries, which is enough wind energy to displace 167 million tonnes of CO2 every year. This is equivalent to burning 70 million tonnes of coal annually.
