In 2018, the Danish Ministry of Environment and Food and the Danish Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs launched a Strategy for Circular Economy, based on recommendations by an Advisory Board for Circular Economy. The strategy will be implemented in the period 2018-2022. The government launched initiatives within six thematic areas:

  1. Strengthening enterprises as a driving force for circular transition
  2. Supporting circular economy through data and digitalisation
  3. Promoting circular economy through design
  4. Changing consumption patterns through circular economy
  5. Creating a proper functioning market for waste and recycled raw materials
  6. Getting more value out of buildings and biomass.
