Focus on CSR

The Danish Government is among the global frontrunners when it comes to promoting corporate social responsibility 

  • Updated 19. October 2023

The government has a comprehensive strategy for CSR with initiatives ranging from several CSR tools and multistakeholder dialogue to legal requirements on CSR reporting. 

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is about businesses voluntarily helping to meet national and global environmental and social challenges. The Danish Business Authority helps Danish businesses recognize that they can increase their competitiveness and create value for their business through CSR activities.

The Danish Business Authority coordinates Government initiatives implementing the Government's action plan for CSR, and also develops and communicates knowledge and tools for businesses and other parties with an interest in CSR. The Danish Business Authority is unable to advise individual businesses, referring these instead to existing business advisory services and consultancy services on the private market.
