Danfoss moves towards becoming carbon neutral before 2030


Danfoss takes an important step to more towards their global target of becoming carbon neutral before 2030. All electricity and heating for buildings at Danfoss headquarter campus will be carbon neutral by the end of 2022.

Danfoss announced a year ago its ambition to be carbon neutral in all global operations within ten years and to contribute to the goals of the Paris Agreement by setting science based targets.

Eight years ahead of reaching this ambitious target, Danfoss global headquarters in Nordborg, Denmark, will reach full CO2 neutrality already in 2022.

The offices and factories of the main campus cover a vast area of more than 250,000 square meters and have undergone a massive change to improve energy efficiency. To a wide extent by applying Danfoss’ own green technologies as part of Danfoss Global Energy Saving Program. Thus, the demand for fossil fuels for heating has been reduced by 60 per cent since 2007.

Already from the beginning of year 2021, Danfoss began to source green electricity for the headquarters and aims to cover 60 per cent of the heating demand with CO2 neutral district energy from a new municipal district heating facility situated next to the Danfoss headquarters. It came into operation in mid-2020. Further, electrifying the heating systems by installing electric boilers will also be considered.

Danfoss CEO and President Kim Fausing says, “In 2021, we will continue our work to make our headquarter campus carbon neutral.” He also further explains, “We will do so by using green electricity and cover the heating demand by CO2 neutral district energy by utilising excess heat from processes and data centers and by installing heat pumps to cover the remaining demand for heating, in other words, by applying our own solutions.”

A few years back in 2015, Danfoss headquarter campus was 100 per cent heated by fossil fuels. From next year it will be CO2 neutral. In 2024, the excess heat from Danfoss newly built data centers will contribute with 25 per cent of the overall heat supply. “Through the solutions we sell, we can help cut global CO2 emissions by several hundred million tons annually. But we also walk the talk ourselves,” Kim Fausing says.
