Numbers and facts
Viegand Maagøe was established in 2006. Today, we employ approximately 50 sustainability experts distributed in Copenhagen and Aarhus.
About 80 % of our customers are privately held enterprises and 20 % are public authorities.
40 % of our projects are conducted internationally.
As part of the 1 % largest suppliers for the public sector since 2018, Viegand Maagøe is an elite supplier for the public authorities.
In 2016, we established 4 core values which guide our work on a daily basis.
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 – for the environment and the climate.
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.
High level of professional competences
We actively use our extensive and overall knowledge in projects when advising and in our solutions. We share knowledge internally as well as externally and we continue to expand our competences.
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.
Our climate action
Viegand Maagøe’s climate goals are a part of Science Based Targets initiative.
We accelerate the green transition for our clients – but also for ourselves.
As the first green consultant in Denmark, our climate goals have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
We have targets in Scope 1, 2 and 3
Viegand Maagøe’s Climate Goals:
- Scope 1 and 2: 50 % reduction of our climate footprint in 2030
- Scope 3: 30 % reduction of our climate footprint pr. employee in 2030
Our goals in Scope 1 and 2 are a part of SBTi, while our Scope 3-goals go above the SBTi-obligation.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
