Denmark keen to help transform Pakistan’s energy sector

Islamabad : Ambassador of Denmark Lis Rosenholm has expressed a keen interest in the green transition in Pakistan and the exchange of knowledge with Pakistan about renewable energy.

She made these marks in an exclusive talk with ‘The News’ here.

Highly appreciating the 10 Billion Tree Tsunami Initiative under the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the ambassador of Denmark said that Pakistan and Denmark share the ambition to fight climate change and engage in a green transition. Denmark is determined to become a net-zero emission society by 2050, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70% by 2030. Denmark’s climate policy aims for a resource efficient society with a renewable based energy supply and significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors. These ambitious targets require a transformation in our society and our economy and not least cutting edge knowledge about the green transition. Pakistan has also committed to mitigate the effects of climate change and reduce its carbon emissions by setting national targets and taking steps in the right direction to these by planting billions of trees and expanding renewable energy and focus on sustainable ecotourism.

Lis Rosenholm also pointed out that the embassy has already appointed a senior counsellor as Head of green growth and sustainability to expand the cooperation across public and private sector regarding the green transition in Pakistan, including in renewable energy.
