A Danish manufacturing firm has become the first company in the world to receive the recently established WindMade label – a new global consumer accreditation for companies that use wind energy.
The WindMade label, which is backed by the UN, requires participating companies to obtain at least 25 per cent of their electricity from wind power.
A wind turbine at global headquarters of Widex – which makes hearing aids – covers 95 per cent of its energy needs, including production, thereby greatly exceeding the basic WindMade requirements.
The WindMade label was created to allow companies to communicate their commitment to renewable energy while providing consumers with the choice to favour companies and products using wind power.
