uring amedia luncheon with the Danish Ambassador
to Singapore H.E. Berit Basse at her residence, she
asked the table what comes to mind when we think
of Denmark.
A variety of answers surfaced – from the
Little Mermaid
and the Tivoli to snaps and Danish cookies. Some talked about
the country’s rich history reflected in her architecture, and
others mentioned cycling as a way of getting around. Her face
brightened when one went on further to say urban planning,
sustainability and smart cities.
Indeed, Denmark has a lot to offer to visiting tourists,
but at the same time, the country is famous for its
excellence in urban planning, a key focus on sustainability,
and most of all, top-notch water-related innovations and
management – something that Ramboll Water is very much
a part of.
