DENMARK: Joint ventures with China to improve energy efficiency and environmental protection
Chinese officials emphasised their desire for further ventures in the energy and environment sectors with Danish companies during a visit to China by Danish Environment and Energy Minister Svend Auken.
A tour by Danish business executives culminated in a two-day Sino-Danish Business Conference on Environmental and Energy Co-operation. Speaking at the conference, Xie Zhenhua, an environmental protection official, reaffirmed China’s interest in working with Danish companies on cleaner energy schemes, particularly as many Chinese cities are working on sulphur dioxide emission reduction programmes in an effort to curb acid rain and air pollution.
About 16 Danish firms specialising in the environment and energy sectors currently work in China.
In November, a seminar on energy-efficient home heating systems will be held in Beijing with Danish firm Danfoss featuring. Participants from Canada, Poland, Russia and Denmark are expected.
