A partnership connecting the past and the future

We have a responsibility to look after the world we live in and everything and everyone that lives here. Together with WWF we will capture our historic CO2 footprint through forest conservation and reduce our future carbon emissions at the same time. It is an ambitious goal and it takes hard work, but it is a task every single one here is ready to face. Not least Ingrid Reumert, Vice President of External Relations & Sustainability who is one of the driving forces behind this initiative.

We achieved a 47% reduction in CO2 emissions in 2019 compared to a 2007 baseline, which puts us well on our way to reaching our 2020 goal of a 50% reduction.

Equality isn’t a goal. It’s a necessity

In natural sciences women are significantly underrepresented. It is a challenge that we are committed to overcome, since we have a fundamental belief that great ideas can come from anywhere and from anyone. Through VILLUM FONDEN we support initiatives that tackle obstacles in our society and recently we have funded the Villum International Postdoc Programme. One of it’s recipients is Freja Nygaard Rasmussen, PhD, who is passionate about creating a future where sustainable buildings are the norm.
