Sustainability

Danske Commodities supports the Paris Agreement and a net-zero future. For us, sustainability is imperative for business, essential to long-term success and pivotal for ensuring that markets deliver value across society. Explore how we put sustainability at the heart of everything we do and sow the ground for an accelerated green transition.
Our purpose

We work for a viable energy future

Our purpose is the core driver of our business. Energy has always been a catalyst for change and growth. But with increasing energy demands come increasing emissions, leading to climate changes that can cause irreparable damage to our planet. The world is calling for an energy transition – and we all need to change the way that energy is produced and consumed.

We believe real value lies in our actions and depends on the accumulated work of all stakeholders. For us, sustainability is not the job of one person, it is everybody’s business.
