Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S is aiming to become carbon neutral by 2030 with a series of new sustainability commitments.
The company plans to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions 55% by 2025, reaching 100% by 2030, it said in a Jan. 6 news release.
Starting this year, it will replace company cars with electric vehicles and transition its global service vehicle fleet to renewable fueled vehicles. It will also explore further steps to cut down on heating- and transport-related carbon emissions from its operations.
Vestas has also committed to slashing the carbon footprint of its supply chain by 45% per MWh generated by 2030 — a measurement that, the company said, "incentivizes sustainability partnerships with suppliers that both reduce CO2 emissions and allows for the continued growth of the global renewable energy sector."
Vestas recently announced a series of wind turbine orders on the last full working day of 2019 totaling nearly 650 MW of capacity across five countries.
