Crown Prince Frederik in his speech tonight
"It is a great honor for my wife, Crown Princess Mary, and myself to welcome you here tonight. Like most other cities, Copenhagen is growing.
- Thinking green has been part of the Danish DNA for decades. Denmark had to think green in the 1970s because of the high oil prices. As a consequence, the foundation was laid for many of our green businesses today. Promoting sustainability has become a Danish trademark . And Danish companies have become world leaders in green technologies."
