About us

We co-create the green transition. The transition relies on a combination of technologies, financing, people, and communications. This is why we are experts in advising about these topics.

Green Transition

In Viegand Maagøe, we generate green transition

  • With technical assistance, we help clients in creating value.
  • We develop strategies that embrace green transitions.
  • We make it feasible by leading the way to the proper financing.
  • We open the doors to people and behavior which are the keys in generating change.

Green IS the new black when we create value with customers, all over the world. We are strengthening our competitive position and ensure concrete energy- and resource improvements. Because, sustainability is worth the effort.

175 million tons of oil

Values

In 2016, Viegand Maagøe’s employees and management have established 4 core values which guide our work on a daily basis.

Helhedsorienteret

Holistic

With our unique combination of professional competences, we actively listen, question, and wonder. We believe that such holistic approach creates the best possible solutions for our clients – and for the environment and climate.

Ordentlighed

Integrity

We keep our promises and collaborators can trust us as a good and loyal partner. Our clients shall experience that we manage projects and situations in a competent manner.

Høj faglighed

High level of professional competences

We actively use our extensive and common knowledge in projects when advising and in our solutions. We share knowledge internally as well as externally and we continue to expand our competences.

Bæredygtighed

Sustainability

We work for sustainability – both environmentally, economically, and socially on a local and global basis.
A green transition of society is the core of our values and in our daily work. For instance, we buy CO2 neutral electricity, we bike to meetings, we have plenty of vegetarian and vegan food alternatives for lunch, and we serve tap water instead of bottled water.

Global Goals

We contribute to the UN Global Goals

Viegand Maagøe’s work contributes to the UN’s 17 Global Goals for 2030. Our projects particularly contribute to goal # 7 and # 12.

We contribute by (among other things):

  • Promoting circular economy
    We advise on circular products and services. For instance, we have helped to up-cycle Danish plastic waste from consumers so it can replace new plastic in high value products – and be recycled up to 10 times.
  • Optimize the use of resources in production
    We help costumers make better use of their resources. For instance, we have helped a business to exploit energy which was previously lost in a wet cooling tower, thus saving water and chemicals.
  • Considering the whole life cycle
    We calculate total costs showing the advantages to resource effective products. For instance, we have shown that low operating costs make it attractive to buy energy efficient computers even when they have a higher purchase price.

 

We contribute by (among other things):

  • Saving energy in industry
    We improve competetiveness for our costumers by optimizing their energy consumption. For instance we have helped Arla save 55 % gas and 15 % electricity in their factory in Nørre Vium, Denmark.
  • Developing EU’s energy demands
    We develop an important part of the foundation for EU’s ecodesign and energy label legislation. This entails enormous energy savings which in 2020 are equal to the annual energy consumption of Italy.
  • Communicating advice on saving energy
    For the Danish Energy Agency we spread tips, advice and guides on how to save energy to consumers, businesses and authorities.

Even small actions make a difference, and a CO2 neutral website is a step in the right direction. Our website’s consumption of power is turned into tangible reductions in CO2 emission, such as investments in windmills.
