The Academy Changemaker Series provides an exciting opportunity for companies around the world to learn from and connect with some of the most innovative and influential people working in or with business to make the world a better place. Join these sessions to understand trends, new ideas, and innovative strategies for corporate action in an ever-evolving sustainability landscape, and leave with key takeaways to learn from and apply in your own company.
In ten years, Ørsted, a multinational energy company, transformed their business model from one based on fossil fuels to one based on renewable energy. In this Changemaker session, Sara Krüger, Executive Director at the Global Compact Local Network Denmark, speaks candidly with Filip Engel, Vice President for Sustainability, Public Affairs, and Branding at Ørsted about their green transformation and his role in making it happen – what they did, lessons learned and what’s next.
During this session you will learn about:
- What motivated Ørsted’s radical transition and why this needs to be a priority for all business leaders
- Key lessons learned in Ørsted’s transition to a more sustainable business model
- How to turn past actions into a positive force for change and work towards net-zero by 2050
- Filip’s take on what future-proof leadership skills and characteristics look like.
Ørsted is a proud patron of the UN Global Compact’s Climate Ambition Accelerator, a 6-month programme designed to guide companies from all sectors in accelerating progress towards net-zero emissions by 2050.
