Our green experts

Jeppe Juul Petersen
I am the Sector Counsellor for Food and Agriculture at the Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing. I work with the agricultural industry in order to improve sustainable food production from farm-to-fork. This includes supporting sustainable and environmentally friendly development in China’s rural areas.

Mutual understanding between Denmark and China can bring Danish companies high standards on food safety into play. Through the Strategic Sector Cooperation (SSC) project on agriculture, I help promote Denmark’s well-established system of long-term policy strategies and technical advantages for green and sustainable agriculture. By doing so, Danish companies can provide knowledge and green technical solutions to support the development of China's rural areas.

Sune Kåre Sørensen
As Climate and Energy Attaché, I am directly involved in green diplomacy and support Denmark's strategic priorities in the climate and energy field in China. My work involves i.a. setting forth the dialogue with China in relation to international climate policy, green transition, Danish leadership within SDG 7 on clean energy for all, and to contribute to the embassy's work as a climate front post. I also support the bilateral government cooperation, where Chinese and Danish authorities exchange experiences within e.g. long-term energy planning, development and integration of renewable energy, development of electricity markets, district heating and offshore wind.

Many Chinese and Danish companies can provide green solutions that can help accelerate the green transition, and therefore I work with The Trade Council to ensure synergy between government cooperation, the embassy's commercial activities and the goal of reducing China's CO2 emissions. 

Another very important part of my work is to build bridge to civil society and put climate on the agenda of the Chinese people.

Christina Anderskov
I am the Sector Counsellor for Sustainable Urban Development at the Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing. I focus on all areas that are concerned with making our cities greener, smarter and better to live in. This includes everything from climate change adaptation and green mobility to waste water management and energy efficient buildings.

My primary responsibility is to implement a Strategic Sector Cooperation project, funded by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), regarding sustainable urban development between the sister cities of Beijing and Copenhagen.

Hans Peter Glipman Jørgensen 
The Embassy of Denmark in Beijing is one of the Danish Green front line missions and as the Counsellor for Maritime Affairs I work with the Chinese and Danish authorities to reduce maritime climate pressure and to improve the conditions related to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

I encourage governments, research institutes and the private sector to work together to create sustainable climate solutions that will benefit people for generations to come. At the same time, our work brings green Danish solutions to the world and creates jobs in Denmark.

Anne Jensen 
My primary responsibility as a Sector Counsellor at the Embassy is to implement a Strategic Sector Cooperation project, funded by the Danish International Development Agency, on the environment and water. Our project maintains close cooperation between the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, the Chinese Ministry of Water Resources and the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment.

The cooperation between Denmark and China supports the bilateral relations and contributes to sustainable growth and the development of China.

Emrah Öztunc
As a Green Energy Expert in China, I consider my role as a Sector Counsellor to be a spearhead for the Danish energy industry, which wants to delve deeper into the Chinese market, and help Chinese state-owned energy companies on their way to a greener future.

My primary motivation is to help Danish companies establish themselves in the Chinese market, increase the Danish presence in China and share Danish experiences. This will help Danish-Chinese government cooperation in the long term. In addition, I also see it as a personal goal that the agenda in China becomes greener and that this is delivered with the assistance of Danish solutions and products.
