In this strategy, the Danish Government presents nine specific initiatives for promoting eco-innovation.
Partnerships for innovation
Targeted and enhanced export promotion
Research and technology development in the interests of the environment
Strengthened efforts to promote eco-efficient technology at the Ministry of the Environment
Targeted promotion of eco-efficient technology in the EU
Climate and energy technology
Environmental impacts from livestock farms
A clean and unspoiled aquatic environment
A healthy environment
These build on ongoing and new initiatives across sectors. The umbrella of initiatives will also be continuously developed in close interplay with Danish, European and international regulation in the individual areas. Not all possibilities for promoting eco-efficient technology are covered with this report.
The report is also an invitation to dialogue with the Danish parliament, enterprises, researchers, investors etc. on how Denmark can accelerate eco-innovation, how we can achieve better cohesion between different policies, and how we can be better at marketing our environmental knowledge and expertise.
This autumn the Government will present a more detailed and specific action plan for promoting eco-efficient technologies. This will also summarise the public and parliamentary debate which will be prompted by this report.
The Danish Ministry of the Environment has published two background reports in connection to this report.
