Denmark’s biggest opposition party has more ambitious ‘Green plans’ than current government
Denmark’s biggest opposition party, The Social Democrats has recently published its energy initiative, in response to the energy initiative published by the country’s current government last week. The energy initiative published by The Social Democrats party is called ‘Denmark will once again be a green superpower.’
Presenting a much bolder plan than the one published by the current government, The Social Democrats party Chairman Mette Frederiksen said that the vision proposed by the party is to free Denmark from fossil fuels “as soon as 2045.” Frederiksen further added: “We won’t wait until 2050, as the goal is today.”
Asserting that a social-democratically spearheaded government will ensure that Denmark becomes a “green superpower” again, Frederiksen said that The Social Democrats party envisions “a society without plastic and air pollution.”
It is interesting to note that pollution and green vehicles have become important election issues in Denmark. Many countries are moving fast on the path to clean and green automobile sector and better policy decisions will improve consumer acceptance of electric vehicles.
With The Social Democrats party’s report covering energy, environment, and financing, it is evident that the opposition party has gone one-up on the government which had said in its report that it will publish the plans related to the transportation sector later this summer.
Overall, with the next general election in Denmark scheduled to be held by June 2019, The Social Democrats party has put forth more aggressive ambitions than the current government in terms of creating a ‘green,’ low-emission society.
