Producing more with less
The Danish transition to a bio-based society with resource-efficient production
The aim of the white paper is to share some of Denmark's solutions and experiences from our ongoing transition to a sustainable agriculture and food cluster that is based on renewable biological resources and ultra resource-efficient production. We believe that by doing so, we can make a tangible contribution to achieving progress on the global sustainability goals and inspire others to do the same. We have gathered a selection of cases, which provide specific examples of how the agriculture and food cluster in Denmark reuses, recycles and upcycles residual and by-products to create new forms of food and feed, materials, new products and even energy. The selected cases also include examples of how maximum value can be extracted from resources, thus reducing overproduction and overconsumption. The cases are supplemented with perspectives from a number of actors in Denmark that work to drive progress in this area. This White Paper provides insights and guidance on how sustainable production in the agriculture and food cluster can be achieved, by way of concrete and ready-to-be-implemented Danish technologies and solutions. The examples contained in this publication can be implemented in a number of contexts and are sustainable in all senses of the word – not only economically, but also environmentally. We hope that you will be inspired.
