EcoVadis, WindEurope and five wind energy industry organisations - ENGIE, Hitachi Energy, Siemens Gamesa, Statkraft and Vestas – announce the launch of the ‘Wind Energy Initiative’.
 
The Initiative aims to accelerate the uptake of sustainable practices by fostering strong collaboration between trading partners and amplifying positive impacts across their value chains.
 
With the launch of the ‘Wind Energy Initiative’  key players in the wind energy industry join forces today to identify and adopt common sustainable business practices. The aim of the Initiative is to achieve a lasting, positive impact on supply chain sustainability.
 
The Initiative’s members pledge to work together to enhance supply chain transparency and bring up the wind industry’s performance standards on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) topics.
 
To underscore its commitment to exemplary sustainable practices, the Wind Energy Initiative sets the following strategic goals to:
  • Enhance the wind industry’s contribution to the global effort in combating climate change by prioritising carbon emission reduction, emphasising the integration of renewable energy, and embracing circular practices.
  • Continue to advance the well-being and fair treatment of all individuals involved in the wind energy supply chain.
  • Continue to promote biodiversity conservation to protect ecosystems impacted by activities related to the wind energy sector.
  • Foster substantial membership growth in the coming years.
To achieve these goals, the Wind Energy Initiative will implement the EcoVadis sustainability ratings methodology as a voluntary standard for assessing their suppliers, and support suppliers in their sustainability journey by communicating a clear strategy and targeted enhancements to drive their ESG performance improvement.
