The Alliance to Save Energy presented the Innovative Star of Energy Efficiency Award to Danfoss for its efforts to create solutions that decarbonize through energy efficiency.

As part of Danfoss’ ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) ambition, the company has pledged to be carbon-neutral in global operations by 2030, setting science-based targets to increase energy efficiency while reducing carbon emissions. Danfoss announced in March 2022 that it had reached its 2030 target of doubling the energy productivity in its factories globally — nine years ahead of time. 

Since 2007, when the initiative begun, the company has reduced energy intensity by 51 percent and CO2 intensity by 42 percent. In 2021, 25 percent of its global electricity consumption was carbon-neutral and 45 percent of its direct energy consumption was from renewable sources.   

Paula Glover, president of the Alliance to Save Energy, presented the award to Rick Sporrer, president of Danfoss North America, at the 30th annual Stars of Energy Efficiency Awards Gala at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. on October 4.
