The Trade Department

The Danish representations within the United States support Danish companies who plan to enter the U.S. market. The Consulate General of Denmark in Chicago provides consultancy services within the Energy & Environment Industry.

The focus areas of the Energy & Environment team are wind energy, water technology, waste and recycling, and district energy. Furthermore, the Consulate General of Denmark hosts two designated groups, the Wind Energy Advisory and the Water Technology Alliance. 

The Trade Department at the Consulate General of Denmark in Chicago provides doorways into the North American market, as Danish companies are able to benefit from a vast network approaching suppliers, customers or partners. Through collaboration, Danish companies are given a platform to enter the North American market with guidance on business strategies, market and competitor analysis, identifying local business partners and retailers, running virtual offices, carrying out product presentations as well as organizing and participating in trade fairs.

Over a period of many years, the Consulate General of Denmark in Chicago has built up its skills, and has positively contributed to Danish companies’ export adventures in the US.
