The Danish government just came out with a major 38-point plan to deal with the arising climate change problems. The plan focuses on:

  • zero-emission buses in the cities;
  • creating stations for electric cars;
  • such vehicles will also be exempt from registration tax;
  • discontinuing the sale of diesel cars;
  • no diesel fueled taxis
  • environmental zones
  • climate-friendly asphalt
  • no old fireplaces (before 2000) 
  • food labeling 
  • development of new technologies

Authorities admit that the plan is quite ambitious but also have strong back up arguments as to why it is also realistic. A lot from the abovementioned major points are planned to be implemented with specially allocated subsidies from the government. For example, homeowners who wish to replace their old and inefficient fireplaces, will be subsidised with 46 million kroner.
