Danish energy policy, Danish environmental history
Over the past 25 years, Denmark has made a transition away from an industrial society with a large agricultural sector towards a service economy. Rapid growth in production volumes has resulted in a higher level of resource consumption and pressures on the environment. This development has influenced Denmark's environmental policy, which has grown and diversified over the years. The following statement Is indicative of the Danish commitment to the environment and the realization that Denmark is one of the world's leaders in sustainable development: The most environmentally conscious countries must therefore be prepared to act as front-runners in the international debate as well as in their own restructuring of production and consumption. At the same time, they must support the poor countries financially and technologically in their restructuring process (Ministry of Environment and Energy, 1995).
