The government pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70% by 2030 and it has also been a leading voice for a green transition on the international stage. Now, the government has taken its international efforts a step further – by appointing its very first Climate Ambassador. The appointment of Tomas Anker Christensen as the country’s climate ambassador serves as an example of how seriously Denmark takes its international role as an advocate for a green transition. The new Danish Climate Ambassador will be tasked with taking part in the UN-mandated international climate negotiations as well as the upcoming climate summit – the COP25. His main role will be to promote the climate-friendly stance of the Danish government and to work on the hearts and minds of other countries’ representatives with the goal of successfully implementing the goals of the Paris climate agreement.
