Sustainability at the core

Sustainability is integrated in our strategy and operations. Across the group, we focus our efforts within safety, environment, technology and people.

Our sustainability efforts start with our vision: Together we capture the wind to power a cleaner world. We have produced more than 175,000 wind turbine blades corresponding to approximately 70 Gigawatts (GW) of installed wind power capacity since the late 1970s. Each year, this effectively replaces approximately 120 million tons of CO2, doing our bit in the global battle against climate change. 

We are proud of that contribution but we also recognize that as a manufacturing company, we can do more to become leaner, greener and cleaner throughout our operations.

In November 2010, LM Wind Power joined the UN Global Compact to emphasize that commitment and kick off a new global sustainability strategy which is being rolled out throughout the LM Wind Power world. One thing is having a ‘green’ product, another is how we design, build and service that product throughout its lifetime.

The sustainability strategy prompts us to review our performance and processes within all areas of operation. We are looking at the working conditions for our employees and how we ensure they are equipped to do their job safely and efficiently. We are scrutinizing our cooperation and interaction with our customers, suppliers, and the communities where we operate to ensure we live up to the principles in our Code of Conduct and that we join forces on the quest towards a more sustainable future. We are mapping our environmental footprint from material and resource consumption to waste handling and product disposal to be able to reduce our harmful impact and include life cycle considerations into new products and designs. And we measure it all to make sure we progress.

Four overall focus areas structure our work: Safety, EnvironmentTechnology and People, as we aim to 

  • Be a robust, trusted, profitable business
  • Improve efficiency, innovation and customer responsiveness
  • Create a more sustainable future for customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and society
  • Operate with respect for the local and global environment and the health and safety of the employees
  • Develop and market products for the low carbon economy
