Dong approves Orsted name
New moniker will take effect at start of trading on 31 October
Dong Energy shareholders agreed today at an extraordinary general meeting to change the company’s name to Orsted.
The change will take effect at the start of trading on 31 October.
Orsted chairman of the board of directors Thomas Thune Andersen said: “I’m delighted that the shareholders clearly supported changing the company's name to Orsted.
“The reason for the name change is that after the comprehensive strategic transformation from black to green energy, our old name no longer matched the company.
Orsted is a signal of our Danish roots – and our vision of creating a world that runs entirely on green energy.”
