legislation type Legislative
Passed in 2009
The purpose of the Act is to promote the use of sustainable biofuels for land transport and to reduce cradle to grave greenhouse gas emissions from transport in order to contribute to the fulfillment of Denmark's international climate commitments. The Act sets mandatory levels of biofuels use for companies and is regularly amended to update these levels.

The 2016 amendment introduces requirements for the use of 0.9 per cent of advanced biofuels in land transport fuels, amends the definition of which companies are covered by the law, and authorises to establish rules for compliance with MRV regulation to promote CO2 emissions reduction from maritime transport and rules on access to ships. 

2019 and 2020 updates are to the list of advanced biofuels; and duty of companies to ensure biofuels make up at least 7.6% of company’s total annual sale of fuels (following European counting rules).
