Designing Our Irresistible Circular Society

What do you think a (more) circular Denmark looks and feels like? How are we citizens, consumers, businesses, and scientists in a circular society?

We need a shared direction for Denmark to become an irresistible circular society in 2030. The shift to a circular society is an urgently needed change. Otherwise, we will not achieve the government’s goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 70 percent by 2030. But the existing ambitions need to be higher.

That is why we’ve launched our initiative 30 for 2030 – a step toward realizing our mission to design an irresistible circular society. With 30 partners, we’ve defined ten actions that enable us to act.

Zooming in on:

Our Digital Mission

Our digital mission is to design technology that sets humanity free. As a society and as companies, we are responsible for ensuring that we, the humans, control the technology – and not the other way around. And we can do just that.

With great partners, we’ve developed The Digital Ethics Compass. Because ethics is not a legal requirement, ethics is about asking yourself: Just because we can, should we? And that is why ethics is a competitive parameter.

Furthermore, we’re working with open-source and distributed design – methods that innovate design, production, and distribution, putting humans at the center and limiting our use of resources.


Most organizations are facing three major societal transitions. We're here to help you turn challenges into opportunities for all three.

Green Transition:
An Irresistible Urge

The past is irreversible. Let’s make a greener future irresistible

Social Transition: A Radical Approach

Rethinking our social structures and designing inclusive social solutions with human needs front and center

Digital Transition: A Moral Imperative

Designing a society, where ethics are a connected part of our digital infrastructure

Can’t get enough of design and innovation? We hear you. And we have you covered.
