Denmark accelerates climate plans with new 2025 deadline
The Danish government has decided to speed up decisions on the road to its 70 per cent emission reduction target. By 2025, all relevant decisions must be in place. The new plan is underpinned by a roadmap consisting of 24 green initiatives.
Two years after the Danish Climate Act’s target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent by 2030, political decisions will bring Denmark about halfway.
Now, the Danish government has analysed key climate technologies and pathways. Based on the analysis, the government announces that all political decisions must be made by 2025 to reach the target in 2030. The path consists of a roadmap of 24 initiatives that will accelerate the climate efforts.
The climate programme also includes an estimate of the costs of the 2030-target, which is estimated to be between 10 and 15 billion DKK annually in 2030.
