Experienced Civil Servant to Strengthen Copenhagen Airport's Focus on Corporate Social Responsibility

In early March, Copenhagen Airports (CPH) launched an ambitious climate strategy. The following month, the Airport became CO2 neutral and is also working to strengthen its social responsibility.  

In order to further strengthen its efforts to further raise the company's corporate social responsibility, the Airport has now appointed a new expert in the newly-created position of Head of Corporate Responsibility.

41-year-old Marie Louise Hansen comes from a position as Head of Department in the Danish Energy Agency, where her duties included energy streamlining and green conversion. She previously held positions in the Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing and the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs. She will take up her position at Copenhagen Airports on Tuesday 11 June.

“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. 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," says the future CR manager, Marie Louise Hansen.

At Copenhagen Airports they are looking forward to 11 June.
“With Marie Louise on board, we will be intensifying our ambitions. She will contribute extensive knowledge of, and experience in both responsibility and green transition, working on a solid basis where there is the focus and will, and the dream of becoming even better in this area, says Communication Director in Copenhagen Airports, Peter Goll. 

Marie Louise holds a MSc in Politics from the University of Copenhagen and lives in Dragør with her husband and two daughters.
