Copenhagen Bike Capital of the World
As you probably have read, over 37% of the Danes use the bicycle daily. The mayor’s goal is 50% and you can see his plan here.
You could understand these fantastic figures in a country with a warm climate – but look at the pictures. Its snowing – cold – and windy and those sust-Dane-able Danes are out there on their bicycles. This tenacity and determination is why the Danes are leading the world in climate solutions.
Performance by Commitment
The lovely smiling face is Sandra from the Hotel Guldsmeden. She is the general manager and owner of the Axel and group. For me, the Axel is one of the top performing sustainable hotels in Copenhagen and probably in Europe. Their attitude to life, services, the community and the planet is exceptional. Sandra and the team decide to pursue and now have achieved GreenGlobe certification. That’s interesting when the majority of the city is GreenKey – however as Sandra commented; GreenKey was to easy for us to achieve. We wanted a standard that would push us to get even better.
In the photo Sandra was giving me a lift to the train-station. Now that is what I call Danish Service.
