Description

The Danish government will propose an expansion of the Danish Financial Statements Act, §99a to ensure that the largest Danish enterprises in their reporting on social responsibility have to explicitly consider their work on respecting human rights and on reducing their climate impact. In order to ensure that the enterprises have the right tools and the necessary guidance to respond to the new demands, the government will strengthen its guidance through e.g. the websites csr-kompasset.dk (“The Corporate Social Resonsibility Compass”) and klimakompasset.dk. (“The Climate Compass”).
