Payback on reusing waste heat took less than three years

Danfoss has a shortlist of energy efficiency measures that all sites can implement

Implementing energy saving measures in its most polluting factories has enabled Denmark’s largest industrial engineering company, pump and heating specialist Danfoss, to significantly reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, while improving energy productivity

Contradiction: Danfoss produces components needed for the clean energy transition, yet in doing so its factories emit large volumes of carbon dioxide

Action: The company introduced a strategy in 2018 to halve carbon dioxide emissions and energy intensity in buildings and production processes by 2030 compared with 2007, while increasing energy productivity by 100%

Results: By the end of 2018, the firm’s energy consumption and CO2 emissions were down by 43% and 27% respectively, while energy productivity had increased by 73%

Key quote: “The greenest kilowatt hour is the one you save.” ...
