Denmark clean but not spotless
Denmark is among the European leaders in environmental performance in areas such as renewable energies, water protection and organic farming, but there are other areas which could still be improved, says EEA Executive Director Jacqueline McGlade in an interview in the latest issue of "MiljøDanmark" in connection with the launch of the Danish state of the environment report 22 September. The report is a comprehensive overview of the state and trends of Denmark's environment published every four years.
In her comments in "MiljøDanmark", a bi-monthly magazine published by the Danish ministry of the environment, Jacqueline McGlade gives Denmark good marks overall, but points out that certain aspects of the air pollution situation, transport and waste generation still give reason for concern. Her comments in MiljøDanmark appear alongside those of Brendan Gillespie, one of the architects behind OECD's work with indicators for sustainable development, and Björn Stigson, president of World Business Council of Sustainable Development.
On 29 November the EEA is itself publishing a five-year report on state and trends of Europe's environment, including a section with country by country analysis.Link: http://www.mim.dk/udgivelser/miljødanmark
