The Energi Danmark Group takes responsibility for climate issues. We have an overriding environment and climate policy of contributing to the development of renewable energy in Denmark. To be able to convert this aim into concrete action, we choose to invest in, construct and operate wind turbine projects through our subsidiary Energi Danmark Vind (EDV). Allowing us to evolve from being exclusively a financial energy trading company to also having physical production. By investing in new wind turbines, we continually strive to increase the net amount of renewable energy sources in Denmark for the benefit of the future environment.
Energi Danmark Vind's purpose is to actively contribute to society through reduced carbon emission and a reduction in the use of fossil fuels. Through the development of the Group's wind portfolio, we are able to deliver increasing volumes of environmentally friendly electricity to the electricity grid. Following the completion of a project, a wind turbine can either be incorporated into the Group's operations and support our own consumption or sold to customers wishing to invest in sustainable energy. Read more about our focus on renewable energy in our latest Annual report.
EDV has taken part in the implementation of new wind power installations in the Danish electricity supply grid corresponding to annual production of 265,000 MWh, which is equivalent to the consumption of around 58,900 households.
In parallel with the development of wind energy in the Danish market and the development of our own wind turbine portfolio, our goal is to offer customers environmentally friendly electricity products combined with the opportunity of participating in new wind turbine projects. The erection of the new turbines helps secure the energy resources of the future. When customers choose sustainable energy, it adds a political agenda in an area where there is still plenty of room for expansion and improvement.
We have developed a sustainable choice through our product Environmentally Friendly Electricity, with which we aim to inspire customers and business partners to make responsible choices. Environmentally friendly electricity is generated from either wind or hydropower sources in Denmark or Norway. When choosing to buy environmentally friendly electricity, customers receive a certificate documenting their responsible purchase – thus also creating additional value for your company.
By hedging their energy needs completely or partly through electricity generated from Danish wind turbines or Nordic hydropower plants, our customers contribute to a continuous focus on renewable energy. In the Energi Danmark Group we continuously focus on giving our customers an environmentally friendly choice when buying electricity.
Back in 2014, the Energi Danmark Group obtained ISO certification to satisfy the requirements that our stakeholders currently stipulate and will stipulate in the future. The Energi Danmark Group is now certified in accordance with the ISO 9001 and 14001 standards.
With ISO 9001, we have implemented a quality management system that covers facilities, employees, training and service functions. ISO 14001 is an environmental management system that provides us with a practical tool for controlling our environmental impact and thereby constantly improving our environmental performance. Using ISO 14001 as part of our own KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), we are able to continuously monitor ourselves and the goals that we set. This means that we can use the KPIs when evaluating previous performance and at the same time use them to set new goals.
We know that our customers and investors will stipulate increasingly stringent requirements for us as their business partner, and that is why our strategic efforts for sustainability are still an important element of our business. That is why we carry out regular internal inspections with and focus on our primary stakeholders: customers, investors and employees.
