Danish Minister of the Environment Lea Wermelin has appointed Camilla Haustrup Hermansen, director and co-owner of the Plus Pack, an international food packing company, as chairman of a new climate partnership focusing on waste, water and the circular economy, said a press release from the ministry here on Saturday.
The latest climate partnership will make recommendations on how the waste and water sectors can be improved to reduce carbon footprint.
"I look forward to the industry's own suggestions to get greenhouse gas emissions down. At the same time, I am obviously interested in views on how the two sectors can accelerate the green transition, and where they see the potential and barriers," said Wermelin.
The partnership is the latest of 13 new partnerships between government and business that will be integrated within the government's proposal for a climate change action plan.
