Green tax reform


A majority in the Parliament (Government, SF, Radikale Venstre, Venstre and Konservative) has agreed to make changes to the green tax. The new carbon tax will be 750 DKK / tonne of emitted CO2, with discounts for certain key industrial companies. 

  • Aalborg Portland (cement producer), the biggest CO2 emitter in Denmark will pay only 125 DKK / tonne of emitted CO2. Enhedslisten refused to support the new agreement due to the discount given to large industrial companies. 
  • The government will offer grants worth 7 billion DKK to help the companies invest in reducing the amount of CO2 emitted.
