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).
