New Sustainability Strategy in Copenhagen

It’s been some years now that Copenhagen has been recognized as the world’s most sustainable tourism destinations. As part of its aim to ensure the city’s position as a frontrunner in this field, Wonderful Copenhagen, the official tourism organization working to promote and develop both business and leisure tourism in the capital region of Denmark, has appointed a Project Manager for sustainable tourism development to help shape the sustainable direction of the organisation and the destination.

In the newly created role, Project Manager Mikkel Sander will be responsible for developing and launching Wonderful Copenhagen’s new sustainability strategy for 2018-2021, which will be closely aligned with the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs). The new sustainability strategy will be launched later in the year.

Copenhagen has made significant investments in sustainable city solutions, attracting worldwide attention when it announced its ambition to become the first carbon neutral capital by 2025. Copenhagen’s meeting industry also takes sustainability seriously with almost 70 % of the city’s hotel rooms being eco certified while many suppliers in the city’s meeting industry have adopted green and sustainable initiatives.
