Sustainable Energy Solutions
With a vision to become the global leader in sustainable energy solutions, everything we do revolves around the development and deployment of sustainable energy solutions.
Every day, our 29,000 employees help to create a better world by designing, manufacturing, installing, developing, and servicing wind energy and hybrid projects all over the world. With +145 GW of wind turbines installed in 85 countries, our sustainable energy solutions have already prevented 1.5 billion tonnes³ of CO₂ being emitted into the atmosphere and contributed to a more sustainable energy system.
We have more than 40 years of experience in wind energy and were the first company to reach the 100 GW landmarks for both the installation and service of wind turbines. As such, we believe we have already played a crucial role in laying the foundations for the sustainable era, and that we are uniquely positioned to show the path to a sustainable planet.
Wind energy is our heritage and core competence. We believe wind will form the backbone of the sustainable energy systems of the future, and we remain focused on developing solutions that accelerate the energy transition and strengthen Vestas’ continued leadership in wind.
Vestas’ purpose is shaped by a passion to make the world a better place and to contribute to a sustainable future. The company’s more than 29,000 passionate employees are its most important asset and the foundation upon which its achievements are built. It is therefore essential to constantly develop and sustain a culture that allows everyone to thrive and reach their full potential.
The four values are Simplicity, Collaboration, Accountability, and Passion, and they are embedded in all People & Culture (HR) processes.
We strive to simplify our work and our solutions to the benefit of our customers.
