Danfoss has received an international recognition for its sustainable and innovative tech solutions and was announced to be the ‘Best Company’ with overall exceptional performance among the other established companies, by Sustainary, the team behind SDG Tech Awards Denmark. In the final Danfoss competed against Rockwool, Carlsberg, Chr. Hansen and Siemens Gamesa.
It is the first time SDG Tech Awards Denmark was organised and the prize statue will be passed over to the next winner at the ceremony next year. The SDG Tech Awards Denmark accounted for a hundred nominees appointed for several categories, where the prize for the ‘Best Company’ is the biggest award of the ceremony.
“It is very positive that Denmark have so many companies that work purposefully and professionally with the Sustainable Development Goals, because that is absolutely necessary if we want to solve the challenges we see all over the world. At Danfoss, we develop and produce technologies and solutions that help reduce our energy consumption and ensure fresh food. And we take our own medicine, so it is natural for us to work very concretely and purposefully with the SDGs and sustainability in general,” says Danfoss Sustainability director, Flemming Lynge Nielsen.
It is Danfoss goal to ensure, that we can provide the latest technologies available to meet our climate targets and help our customers to increase their energy efficiency. As a business founded on energy efficiency, Danfoss solutions help our customers to reduce energy consumption and contribute to achieving sustainable development goals – the global joint framework to mitigate climate change.
The example of such solution is Turbocor oil-free compressor for chillers, which was endorsed by energy efficient label Solar Impulse earlier this year and recognised for its contribution to SDG 7 “Affordable and Clean Energy for All”. The Turbocor oil-free compressor was initially nominated for the SDG Tech Awards Denmark in the category “Resource Management” and was among the finalists in the category.
