About DI

The Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) is the strong voice of corporate Denmark. On the behalf of 10,000 member companies, DI works to provide the best conditions for Danish businesses in order to improve the opportunities for growth and overall competitiveness.

"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.
