From being number 2 out of 129 countries on the global sustainability index in the last rating Denmark is sliding down to be rated as number 5. Denmark’s AAA rating correspondingly is sliding down to an AAB rating.

The global sustainability index evaluates 129 countries on their ability to provide the country with a safe and climate-friendly energy supply to an affordable price.

In the energy agreement from 2012 Denmark got what former minister for Climate, Energy and Building Martin Lidegaard called the world’s most ambitious energy policy. Now it goes in the wrong direction when the effect of the energy policy is being evaluated.

DI Energy and WEC Denmark invites to a presentation and discussion of the rating:

• How is the rating performed?

• Why is Denmark’s rating sliding down?

• What are the consequences for our reputation and export of green technology?

• What can Denmark do to get back to the top again?
