Let Aquarden Technologies help you with your environmental approval

Who must obtain environmental approval?

The potentially most polluting industrial enterprises must obtain an environmental approval. In Denmark, those industrial activities are listed in Annex 1 and Annex 2 of the Order of Environmental permitting (Godkendelsesbekendtgørelsen) (Note 1). Colloquially, they are also referred to as ‘Chapter 5 firms‘ as Chapter 5 in the Environmental Protection Act describes ‘list companies’ (listevirksomheder) (Note 2).
