Associate Sponsor

Ørsted, (formerly DONG Energy) is proud to return for a fourth year as sponsor of Wildlife Photographer of the Year.


Ørsted is a renewable energy company that is taking tangible action to create a world that runs entirely on green energy. Its new name pays tribute to Danish scientist Hans Christian Ørsted, whose curiosity, dedication and interest in nature led to his discovery of electromagnetism in 1820, which paved the way for how electricity is generated today. The company is undertaking a truly green transformation, having divested its oil and gas production business as well as committing to phasing out coal from its power stations worldwide.

Headquartered in Denmark, Ørsted builds and operates offshore wind farms and bioenergy plants, develops innovative waste-to-energy solutions and provides smart energy products to its customers. Ørsted is a significant investor in the UK, which is the company's largest market for offshore wind power.
