UN Global Goals and Denmark

In 2015, the UN member states, including Denmark, committed themselves to a new framework for sustainable development, with 17 global goals and 169 targets through to 2030.

The Danish agricultural and food sector is one of Denmark’s most important positions of strength and is thus able to contribute – both at home and abroad – to the 2030 sustainable development agenda and the UN’s global goals. Sustainable and intensive production means that more is produced with less climate impact. More with less: this lies at the heart of the Danish food sector’s efforts to ensure the continuous development of a resource-efficient agricultural and food sector. For example, far more products are now being produced for the global market, but with lower CO2 emissions, water and energy consumption.
