Minister: The Danish maritime industry must be climate-friendly

The green growth possibilities and future environmental demands must be a driver for the development of the maritime cluster in Denmark, says the Danish Minister for the Environment, Ida Auken, in a response to recommendations from the government’s growth team.

“The Danish maritime industry must be part of a climate-friendly Denmark, and strengthened environmental demands could be a driver for this development. Therefore, I am also pleased that the growth team has acknowledged the green growth opportunities within the maritime cluster,” says the Danish Minister for the Environment, Ida Auken, in a comment regarding a strengthened maritime industry in Denmark.

“I look forward to working in collaboration with the industry to translating the good recommendations into concrete actions. For instance, this involves heightening the demand for environmentally and climate-friendly shipping transport and developing an arrangement through which the companies can see their environmentally friendly actions set down on paper,” says Ida Auken.
