Carbon-neutral Danfoss

Solarpanels with proofstamp - 36% carbon reductions

Our ambitious goal

To address the climate crisis, we need ambition and action - we want to do our part.

In 2020, we announced our ambition to be carbon-neutral in all our global operations by 2030 and to contribute to the goals of the Paris Agreement in accordance with science.

We support the Business Ambition for 1.5°C and signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative – because as an engineering company, we naturally believe in science to solve our biggest challenges.

Our journey towards carbon neutrality

We will reach our goal by continuing to prioritize energy efficiency in buildings and processes, by moving towards electrification to meet our heating demand, and by using electricity from renewable sources to limit our global carbon-emissions footprint.

From January 2021, Danfoss uses carbon-neutral electricity for all our locations in Denmark and Germany through our first Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

The agreement delivers 25% of the group’s total electricity consumption, and is an important step towards carbon neutrality by 2030. The PPA will reduce Danfoss’ global CO2 emissions by an estimated 30,000 tons. We strive for half of our electricity to be carbon neutral by the end of 2021.

We joined the Climate Group business initiatives

In 2020, Danfoss joined all three business initiatives by the Climate Group to send a strong signal to our business partners that we deliver on our climate ambition. We were the first global technology company to do so.  

The Climate Group is an international non-profit organization founded in 2003 and working towards a world with net-zero emissions by 2050.

They build networks of governments and businesses who can commit to three sustainability pledges on 100% renewable energy (RE100), improving energy productivity (EP100) and shifting their fleets to electric vehicles by 2030 (EV100).
