The Danish Government has launched the first collective Danish Action Plan for Eco-efficient Technology. The Action Plan will help ensuring that Denmark and Danish enterprises continues to be in the forefront when it comes to developing environmental solutions for the future in the global community.
Massive targeted investment in eco-efficient technology is necessary. The world is facing significant environmental challenges, from climate change to water pollution and toxic chemicals. These challenges demand development and use of new technologies. The Action Plan demonstrates that the Danish government is investing massively in eco-efficient technology where it is needed most, and where Denmark has the basis to deliver competitive solutions in a class of their own.
Private enterprises are at the heart of the nine initiatives in the Action Plan. Enterprises and entrepreneurs are those who can develop and supply practicable solutions, whether they are the new generation of mega wind turbines or new enzymes to reduce environmental impacts from livestock manure.
