DNV GL CEO Becomes Denmark’s Climate and Energy Emissary

Source: DNV GL

The Danish Government has appointed DNV GL CEO Ditlev Engel as Denmark’s special envoy for Climate and Energy until the end of September 2019.

During his temporary assignment, Engel will be responsible for working on strengthening Denmark’s global partnerships, promoting private investments in the green transition and generally supporting the country’s international climate action in the lead up to the UN Climate Summit in New York in September next year.

The focus will particularly be on green climate investments to achieve higher country ambitions, as well as displaying concrete action in support of the Paris Agreement targets, DNV GL said.

“It is a great privilege to support the Danish Government in its decarbonization ambitions. The results of the current COP24 climate conference are an urgent reminder that immediate action is required to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius,” said Engel.

“We need to make significant and fast progress every single year from now on, globally – otherwise it will be too late to deliver on the targets we set in the Paris agreement. I am looking forward to be contributing with all my knowledge and experience to support the Danish Government in their ambitious targets to build a low carbon economy.” 

According to DNV GL, Engel has more than 20 years of experience in the energy sector and has been actively involved in both local and global initiatives to accelerate green investments over the years.
