An invited guest shares their insight on an image from Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
Double interest taken by Scott Portelli.
This outstanding image gives us a glimpse into the hidden richness of life in our oceans. It also reminds us of our responsibility to do everything we can to tackle the twin crises of our time: climate change and biodiversity loss. All of us who use the sea must be part of the solution and not adding to the problem. At Ørsted, we’ve set the ambition that all the new renewable energy projects we commission from 2030 onwards should deliver a net-positive biodiversity impact, helping restore biodiversity as we tackle the climate crisis.
