CPH upgrades social responsibility with appointment

An experienced civil servant will strengthen Copenhagen Airport’s focus on corporate social responsibility and “green conversion”.

Copenhagen Airport launched what it called “an ambitious climate strategy” in early March, and the following month it became CO2 neutral. Now it is working to strengthen its corporate social responsibility, and to that end has appointed an “expert” in the newly created position of head of corporate responsibility.

Marie Louise Hansen, 41, comes from a position at the Danish Energy Agency, where her head-of-department duties included “energy streamlining and green conversion”, the airport says.

She previously held positions at the Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing and at the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs. She will take up her position at CPH on June 11.

She holds an MSc in Politics from the University of Copenhagen and lives in Dragør, immediately to the south of the airport, with her husband and two daughters.

“Copenhagen Airports is a large company. With its countless business partners, it has a unique opportunity to cooperate with the airlines and the rest of the industry to guide the industry in a more responsible direction that is not hazardous to the climate,” says the future corporate responsibility manager.

“CPH’s climate strategy underlines the fact that it has high ambitions in terms of making a difference for the climate. I am looking forward to using my experience of developing green, energy-efficient solutions and creating strategic partnerships to develop and realise CPH’s high ambitions in the area of CR.”

Intensifying ambitions
Copenhagen Airport’s management says it too is looking forward to June 11.

“With Marie Louise on board, we will be intensifying our ambitions,” says communications director Peter Goll.

“She will contribute extensive knowledge and experience in both responsibility and green transition, working on a solid basis where there is a focus, a will and the dream of becoming even better in this area.”
