Agenda for action for the UN Sustainable Development Goals

​With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we have adopted the most ambitious direction towards a more sustainable development for us all, our children and our planet. With this agenda for action, the Capital Region of Denmark have set the direction for our contribution to the realisation of the SDGs.

​The Region is committed to implementing the SDGs

With its 40,000 employees and DKK 39 billion budget, the Capital Region of Denmark is responsible for the running and development of Denmark's largest healthcare system. And together with others we develop the Region with respect to environment, traffic, education and social issues.

That is why we have a special responsibility for solving many of the challenges addressed by the SDGs and can make a significant difference by pushing the Region and its surroundings into a more sustainable direction.

In the Capital Region of Denmark, we are already making a great effort to realising the SDGs. And we will continue to do so. At the same time, we use the SDGs to promote sustainable devel­opment by 2030.

In this way, we focus our efforts on providing the Capital Region of Denmark with a coherent healthcare system at international top level and a green and innovative metropole with sustainable growth and a high quality of life.
