Climate – green, safe and healthy
The Capital Region of Denmark is working to ensure sustainable growth and development – and thus a good, healthy life for the region’s residents. Together with the municipalities, the business community and various organisations the capital region is aiming to become more energy efficient, climate prepared and attractive – green, safe and healthy.
The Capital Region of Denmark and the City of Copenhagen Municipal Contact Council have drawn up a joint climate strategy that addresses the wide-ranging climate challenges. The vision is to ensure that the capital region is the most climate prepared and energy efficient region in Denmark.
Some of the initiatives taken for a greener region are within:
The Capital Region of Denmark provides healthcare and mental healthcare for 1.7 million people or approx. 30% of the population of Denmark.
In addition the capital region is also doing research, regional development and growth in areas such as business, education, transport and climate.
Soil is literally the foundation on which we will build a sustainable future. Despite this, soil is contaminated, exploited, and degraded all over the world. Insides this White Paper is an overview of the Danish sector for soil and groundwater remediation and the companies which contribute to its development.
