Economic growth during green transition

Since the 1990s Denmark has experienced economic growth by 41 percent and cut their green house gas-emission (GHG) with 33 percent.

Normally when you hear about lowering GHG-emissions, you do not think of economic growth. But is a misconception if you ask the Danish Energy Agency.

“Countries do not need to fear the green transition because economic growth and lower GHG-emission is not opposites,” says Kristoffer Böttzauw, vice president at the Danish Energy Agency.
