These turbines are part of a 258 MW wind farm in Liverpool Bay that was developed by Ørsted A/S.

Ørsted A/S, a Danish energy company that focuses on renewable energy, is at the top of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations list.[1] Rankings are based on up to 21 key performance measures (KPM) that assess management of resources, employees, and finances.[2] Data for the assessment is retrieved from sources available to the public.

A Canadian business magazine, Corporate Knights – The Voice for Clean Capitalism – researches and publishes the Global 100 ranking. The list and many other sustainable business articles can be read from the website, which is powered by 100% renewable electricity.
