Denmark launched on Tuesday a package of 38 initiatives, entitled Together for a Cleaner Future, aimed at improving air quality and achieving the country’s goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2050.

Many of the measures, which complement Denmark’s Clean Energy Plan announced in June, focus on transport.
