WWF and Ørsted in new global partnership

WWF and Ørsted aims to advance offshore wind deployment that enhances ocean biodiversity, and drive a global shift towards addressing climate and biodiversity goals together. Climate change is accelerating biodiversity loss, as crucial ecosystems and wildlife are hit hard by the impacts of a warming world. The ocean already plays a significant role in climate change mitigation, but it is not in good health, and its ability to mitigate climate change is at risk. The renewable energy transition is central to tackling these interlinked crises.

Today, WWF, the world leader in nature conservation, and Ørsted, the world’s most sustainable energy company, announced a five-year global partnership to drive a fundamental change in the approach to integrating action on climate and biodiversity by advancing offshore wind that strives to achieve a net-positive biodiversity impact. Ørsted and WWF will jointly identify, develop, and advocate for offshore wind deployment initiatives and approaches that not only are in balance with nature but also enhance biodiversity.

An integrated approach

In this decade, the global installed offshore wind capacity is expected to increase by a factor of seven. This is great news for the climate and for nature as it replaces environmentally damaging fossil fuels. The climate and the nature crises are deeply interconnected. Yet, they are often addressed independently without considering the impacts or the synergies.
