Denmark has set an ambitious climate goal: To reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70% by 2030. COP26 will be an unprecedented opportunity to discuss and share the green solutions needed to reach both national and global climate targets. That is why Denmark and +30 Danish public and private partners were present at the Danish Pavilion in the Blue Zone at COP26 – to share solutions, inspire for change and build partnerships.

Denmark has set one of the world’s most ambitious goals despite its very small size: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent by 2030 (compared to 1990) and reach net-zero emissions in 2050.  For this reason, several Danish public and private stakeholders participated and engaged at COP26 to discuss challenges and – just as importantly – solutions to drive the green transition both in Denmark and globally.  Denmark hosted national pavilion in the UNFCCC Blue Zone where partners organised and hosted side events and dialogues between international decision makers.

The overarching focus was “Denmark towards 2030 – Climate partnerships for a greener future”. Through this focus, we have highlighted the importance of public-private partnerships in the process of accelerating innovation, scaling up new technologies and financing the global green transition.
