Frank Jensen

Frank Jensen was born in 1961 in Copenhagen. In 1986 he received a Master's degree in Economics from Aalborg University. Member of the Social Democratic Party, he was elected mayor of the capital in 2010.

A major focus in his Copenhagen development programme is the complete eradication of harmful emissions by 2025. The goal is to create a clean, green city with a high quality of life and carbon-free air. The Copenhagen Climate Plan is one of many initiatives to create an energy-efficient and eco-friendly city. This will happen with the support of the development of city infrastructure, the achievement of economic growth, and the creation of new jobs in this area.

After allegations of sexual assault surfaced against Frank Jensen in October 2020, he resigned from his post. Copenhagen will be governed on an interim basis by Lars Weiss until 29 October until a new candidate is put forward.
