It is crucial that we all take responsibility and play our part to reduce emissions if we are to meet the ambitious targets of the Paris Agreement. At Danish Technological Institute, we have knowledge, technologies and facilities that can support the goal of reaching Net Zero by 2050. We will mobilise them to build a better future.
—  Juan Farré,
CEO at Danish Technological Institute

green electricity by 2030 — and reducing consumption

Status: In 2023, with the commissioning of the first of two solar parks through Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), we have secured the supply of new renewable energy to the community, equivalent to nearly 40% of our current annual consumption. The facility became operational on October 1, 2023. Despite an 8% growth in the number of employees and business scope, the Danish Technological Institute has avoided an increase in electricity consumption. Several initiatives have been launched to achieve an actual reduction.

waste recycling by 2030

Status: Around 60% of our waste by weight was recycled in 2023. To ensure significant improvement, new initiatives were implemented and monitoring was increased in the fall of 2023. Therefore, we expect an improvement in the assessment for 2024.

reduction of heat consumption by 2025

Status: In 2021, we used just over 9 GWh of district heating. In 2023, our consumption was reduced by over 10%. Our goal is a reduction of 15%.

How we work with ESG

A focus on the environment and climate

At Danish Technological Institute, our work with sustainability is particularly focused on how we can reduce our environmental and climate footprint. Sustainability is an integrated part of our activities in relation to employees, customers, suppliers, business partners and society in general.

A scientific approach to ESG with the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)

At Danish Technological Institute, we want to ensure that our efforts in the ESG area make a measurable difference. We have therefore chosen to join the Science Based Targets initiative. The initiative is leading an ambitious climate effort where companies specify science-based targets to reduce their emissions. By joining this initiative, we have committed ourselves to achieving the Net Zero target in 2050. To achieve this, it is essential that we implement a number of initiatives now and towards 2030 to limit our greenhouse gas emissions.

We are eco-management certified according to the ISO 14001 standard

At Danish Technological Institute, we want to set a good example and complete initiatives that ensure ongoing environmental improvements. Therefore, we work systematically to ensure ongoing monitoring, evaluation and improvement of our efforts. We are also eco-management certified based on the internationally recognised ISO 14001 standard.

Our scope is:
Internal operation, service and maintenance of infrastructure for all our locations.

More biodiversity

At Danish Technological Institute, we work with our gardeners to make a specific and localised difference to make nature wilder, richer and more diverse.

Wild Natural Areas is all about creating change through knowledge sharing and action, which is why in 2022 we have converted large parts of our short-mowed lawns in Taastrup and Aarhus to areas with wild grasses and flowers, established brushwood fences from cut branches and twigs on the properties, laid out tree trunks and boulders and much more. We have the largest areas in Taastrup, and we are not done here, but expect to be finished in 2024.
