Copenhagen Joins World Finance 100 List

    Stockholm (NordSIP) – Copenhagen Capacity, the official organisation for investment promotion and economic development in Greater Copenhagen, was announced earlier in the month as being on the World Finance 100 leaders list, alongside such corporate giants as Apple, Amazon and Airbnb.

    The World Finance list is provided by the UK financial publication World Finance, which annually lists the 100 companies, organisations or individuals it judges have done the most to raise the standards of their respective industries. The list mirrors the Forbes 500 list on several key criteria.

    “In respect of Copenhagen Capacity’s inclusion as ‘World Finance 100 Leader’, World Finance’s adjudication panel recognise the outstanding success of the agency in promoting the greater Copenhagen region and attracting foreign inward investment, alongside Copenhagen Capacity’s specialism in advancing the region in key sectors,” the publication commented on Copenhagen Capacity’s inclusion.

    Copenhagen Capacity supports foreign companies, investors and talent in identifying and capitalising on green business opportunities in Greater Copenhagen, from the initial stages of consideration to the final stages of investment.

    “Today, Copenhagen has a vision of becoming the first CO2-neutral capital by 2025. This is a political vision that signals to businesses all over the world that the government is committed to taking bold actions to build and invest in a sustainable city,” wrote Copenhagen Capacity CEO Claus Lønborg in World Finance’s pages in response to the recognition. “Consequently, Copenhagen has become the perfect playground for companies that wish to be at the forefront of green technological developments. This is where Copenhagen Capacity plays a crucial role.”

    “Our overarching goal is to present international companies and talents with opportunities that will make them thrive in Greater Copenhagen. For instance, we help foreign companies become a part of Copenhagen’s green hub so they can test and develop new solutions that will grow their businesses and ultimately bring Copenhagen closer to its goal,” he added.

    Copenhagen Capacity’s services are free of charge for all foreign-owned companies planning on investing or establishing themselves in the Greater Copenhagen region.
