"If companies are to be prepared for the global market of tomorrow, they must be accountable and give thoughtful attention to both local and global demands," says Director General, CEO, Karsten Dybvad, the Confederation of Danish Industry.
"Companies put increasingly more demands on employees and society. This is necessary if Denmark is to remain one of the richest societies in a still more internationalised and knowledgeable economy. Companies constantly face new demands. Politicians, organisations and populations expect companies to contribute to sustainable development. For all these reasons, an open dialogue with the rest of society is vital for Danish industry," says Karsten Dybvad.
The Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) is a private organisation funded, owned and managed entirely by 10,000 companies within manufacturing, trade and service industry.
DI aims to provide the best possible corporate conditions for Danish industry.
DI's membership is comprised of 10,000 private enterprises within manufacturing and services covering virtually all sub-sectors.
Also, a number of sectoral employers' associations and branch federations are included in DI's framework, being integrated in part or in full in DI.
Moreover, the members of DI in each county constitute a regional federation dealing with regional policy as well as educational issues.
DI is financed and owned by the members and governed by a council and executive committee elected by the annual general assembly.
DI's management oversees the daily activities of 600 employees.
DI's activities could be categorised as follows:
The flexible labour market - protecting people, not jobs, Political influence - dialogue and discussion, Top priorities - political focus, DI in Europe and DI in the world.
