VisBlue - SDGs
Our contribution to the SDGs
How do we contribute to Goal 2?
No one should die of or suffer from hunger and to fight hunger, sustainable agriculture is key, along with modern and innovative technologies.
Unsustainable farming leads to environmental degradation, drought, and loss of biodiversity, which results in a rising number of people becoming malnourished or hungry.
We support Goal 2 and Target 2.A through our installation on the Danish island Livø. Our installation on Livø provides a basis for sustainable farming to take place. Here, our battery provides the island with reliable electricity, by storing the surplus energy from the island’s renewables (solar panels and a wind turbine) for later use.
This ensures that the farming on Livø is well on its way to depend 100% on renewable energy and phase out its old and polluting gensets.

In order for Goal 2 to become a reality by 2030, we want to install and assist in additional projects that support sustainable farming.
How do we contribute to Goal 4?
Goal 4 is important to us, as we believe that education is a fundamental
right. Through education we become innovative and acquire knowledge, which is a crucial part in securing the future for us and our planet.
With the help of NRGi’s Værdipulje, we contribute to Goal 4 and Target 4.7. We do this, by inviting schools around Denmark to visit us and our facilities, where we teach them about energy in general, energy storage, and the future of energy.
At the moment, more than 1,000 school children have visited us during the last year. We also invite other interested parties, such as municipalities and companies, to come by and experience our facilities and learn something new about energy, which we hope inspires thought and action.
We also work together with Aarhus University to help educate students and ensure a better quality of education. An example of how this is done is through the internships we offer at VisBlue (see Target 8.6).
But this is not all we do – we also take every chance we can to visit schools, municipalities, companies, etc. and educate them about energy, energy storage, and innovative thinking.
This is something we want to keep doing to make sure that the word of
green energy and sustainability is spread.

To ensure that Goal 4 becomes a reality by 2030, we want to keep educating and spreading knowledge, and in that way do everything we can to ensure that everyone has access to (sustainable) education.
