Green embassy

The Embassy of Denmark in Korea is one of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Green Frontline Missions. In the following, you can read more about the Embassy in Seoul's work as a green frontrunner. 

The Embassy of Denmark in Korea was in 2019 designated as one of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Green Frontline Missions, meaning that the Embassy in Seoul is committed to integrate the Danish Government's green agenda - both internally and externally.


As a Green Frontline Mission, the Embassy promotes green solutions, green technology and sustainable energy sources in South Korea. The Embassy in Seoul has entered into a number of important green collaborations with Korea as part of the Strategic Partnership agreed upon in 2011, which was elevated to a Comprehensive Green Strategic Partnership in 2021. The Embassy supported the establishment of the Green Growth Alliance (GGA) that acts like a foundation for the close partnership between Denmark and Korea within the green sector. The Embassy also supports the Danish-Korean multilateral partnership "Partnering for Green Growth and Global Goals" (P4G), Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF). All of these partnerships promote the green agenda, and the Embassy continuously work to increase the green cooperation between Denmark and Korea.


A particular important part of the green mission in Korea is the development of offshore wind energy. To ensure the implementation of more offshore wind in Korea, the Embassy promote Danish solutions within renewable energy and offshore wind. The green collaboration between Denmark and Korea also includes air pollution, circular economy and biogas.


The Embassy of Denmark in Korea strives to be green in its daily work as well. The Embassy is part of the "Green Embassy Network" - a network of Danish embassies all over the world, who all commits to be more sustainable in their day-to-day work.
