Sustainability is at the center of everything we do – literally and figuratively. WindForce’s core business as a producer of renewable energy is, in itself, a part of the solution for the most significant sustainability topic in the modern era – the global fight against climate change.

To ensure WindForce remains on track to contribute to global sustainability goals, we benchmark our performance against the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), where the 17 SDGs and their 169 allied targets set a clear and well defined framework for organisations and governments to pivot towards sustainable growth.

On this basis, WindForce’s main contribution is to Goal 7: Affordable Clean Energy. In addition, we have also implemented a 5-pillar sustainability strategy to make a meaningful contribution towards the other goals.
