As an industry association, Danish Maritime is the meeting place for Danish manufaturers of maritime equipment and ships. One of the most important tasks of the association is to contribute to the continuous success and global competitiveness of the Danish maritime industry by promoting favourable conditions for the Danish maritime industry.
Danish Maritime initiates cooperation between its member businesses in a variety of areas. It is a centre of knowledge, furnishing its members, public authorities and the media with the latest relevant information on the maritime sector. The association brings together member businesses in a meaningful network, and the association enables and ensures cooperation with other parts of the Danish as well as international maritime clusters.
Danish Maritime is a recognized political player and consulting partner within maritime affairs. They have good cooperation with Danish and European politicians, and they participate in several IMO committees.
In general, Danish maritime manufacturers offer very environmentally and climate friendly solutions, and in many cases the products and solutions do not only meet with the applied legislation; often they are even a step ahead to be ready for future demands. It is important to have high standards in environmental and climate issues. However, it is also important that the rules and legislation that apply are the same for everyone, as the maritime industry is global and compete globally. Danish Maritime is aiming for high international standards – i.e. by participating as a delegate at IMO meetings.
