No matter where you look, Danes are focusing on sustainable solutions. Copenhagen has won the prestigious ‘European Green Capital’ award in recognition of the city's efforts to combine sustainable solutions with growth and quality of life. Clean water, parks and natural areas are just some of the factors that make Denmark a great place to live and visit. For example, 96% of Copenhagener’s have the ability to access a large green or maritime area in less than 15 minutes. Also, an expansion in wind turbines and an environmentally friendly usage of electronic and renewable energy resources seats Denmark as a society, which emphasises the need for green, sustainable and responsible solutions.
Examples of green activities:
- Take a boat trip to an offshore windmill park.
- Enjoy your lunch in one of our many parks or green spaces.
- Start your day with a refreshing swim in our clean harbour.
