Sustainable Development Report 2021

Denmark ranked #3 in an international comparison of sustainable development. The annual ranking by the United Nations and the Bertelsmann Stiftung assesses countries’ progress on implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals. Denmark has made successful efforts to combat poverty, reduce inequality and make clean and affordable energy widely available. Last week the Government introduced a new plan for the continued work to achieve sustainable development socially, economically and environmentally.

For the first time, Finland has been ranked #1 in the international comparison of sustainable development. Finland has received international praise for how society as a whole participates in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. This past spring, the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development received the international Catalyst 2030 Award for sustainable development. The Commission brings together a broad range of stakeholders from different areas of society.

Prime Minister Sanna Marin, who also chairs the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development, emphasises that Finland’s first place ranking is the result of long-term work and the contribution of all of Finnish society.

Sweden ranks with Denmark and Finland in the top 3.

Today is #WorldOceanDay 🐠🐳🐬🐟

In Denmark, the sea is never more than 50 km away. With a coastline that stretches more than 8,000 km, the ocean holds a very special meaning, not only to people in Denmark but to people all over the world. That is why it is crucial that we protect the ocean as the important resource it is💧

Help us grow the global movement to protect 30% of land and ocean by 2030. Through World Ocean Day you can sign in support of #Protect30x30 #OceanClimateAction

Happy Constitution Day! Glædelig Grundlovsdag! 🇩🇰

Dannebrog is waving in the skies all over Denmark and here at the Embassy today, as we celebrate one of the world's oldest constitutions. Today marks the day, where Frederik VII signed the first constitution on June 5 1849, which laid the foundation for the Danish democracy. Adding further significance to the date, the revision on 5 June 1915 granted women the right to vote and turned Denmark into a real democracy.

Constitution day is the closest Denmark comes to a national day and an important occasion to celebrate our fundamental human rights.

Green rooftops are part of the Climate Plan of the City of Copenhagen. Green rooftops are mandatory in most newer local plans, and so the city will become even greener from above in the future. There are around 40 green roof tops in Copenhagen with some available to the public. The green roof tops are very diverse from the ski hill on CopenHill Urban Mountain ⛷to the urban farm of Gro Spiseri 🥬🍎

The green roof tops play an important role in combating climate change through the increased oxygen production from the plant mass. The green roof tops also help combat the effects of climate change through absorbing rainwater, enhancing biodiversity and cooling the city 🌿
