Denmark - The State of Green Solution

This booklet "Denmark - The State of Green Solutions" leads you through a description of the Danish way of entering the GREEN scene in different areas - and concrete solutions to take global climate action. In many chapters of the booklet, you will find QR-codes containing videos and much more to explore.

Denmark is a small country in terms of the size of our population. Around 5.8 million people live here. However, we see ourselves as a giant country on the GREEN scene. Over the past 50 years, we have ensured a smooth transition from black to green energy, and have shown that economic growth and green transition can go hand in hand. In October 2020, the Danish Government launched a new long-term strategy on global climate action ‘A Green and Sustainable World’, which sets the direction for Denmark’s international climate efforts. We have the experience and the green solutions, and that is why we have a unique opportunity to contribute solutions to global climate challenges.


Increased global ambitions and actions are necessary to reach the Paris Agreement’s 1.5 degrees Celsius objective. Denmark wishes to be a green frontrunner in global climate action that inspires and encourages the rest of the world. Our goal is 70 percent emission reductions by 2030 and climate neutrality by 2050. We will help lead the green transition by furthering global ambitions on climate, environment and nature. And we will actively promote and support the Paris Agreement in addition to sustainable development aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We will work for a socially just green transition that creates green skilled jobs, avoids increasing inequality around the world and ensures access to clean water and clean energy to create jobs and apprenticeships, particularly in developing countries.


The COVID-19 pandemic has only intensified the need for ambitious measures in support of sustainable development and green transition as a means of creating a real and lasting economic recovery. We believe we can use the Danish example to rebuild better and greener societies.
