Denmark's Climate Ambitions

Click to read about Denmark's climate ambitions.

In 2020, the Danish parliament passed Denmark’s first climate act. With a legally binding target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent by 2030 and to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, the law sets a clear direction for Denmark’s green transition. Increased global ambitions and actions are necessary to reach the Paris Agreement’s 1.5 degrees Celsius objective. Denmark aims to be a green frontrunner that can inspire and encourage the rest of the world. Denmark has the experience and the green solutions, and that is why we have a unique opportunity to contribute solutions to global climate challenges. We will help lead the green transition by furthering global ambitions on climate, environment and nature.
