Greater Copenhagen - a region of green frontrunners

Greater Copenhagen is the metropolitan region that covers Eastern Denmark and Southern Sweden. Ambitious goals for sustainability in both countries have sparked a strong commitment to green transitions in the Greater Copenhagen region. Companies in the region focus on areas like green transportation, upcycling and recycling, sustainable buildings and renewable energy.

And with some of the flattest workplace hierarchies in the world, you are encouraged to share your ideas and take an active part in shaping the green transition in Greater Copenhagen. 

But can a region that prides itself on green transition – with climate change at the forefront of its thinking and high dedication to a sustainable agenda – also be a region that is one of the most favoured places to live in? Without a doubt!
