Copenhagen Economics is an expert driven consulting company built on a deep knowledge of applied economics. We believe sound economic analysis can equip decision makers with the hard facts and clear stories to make better choices for the benefit of society.
Sometimes our work resonates and has a direct impact on the public agenda. At other times, it contributes more subtly to the making of superior decisions within a company, organisation, or courtroom.

Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) provide unique ways of developing and scaling high-potential companies, by bringing capital to high-risk companies and deploying active ownership. In a new report commissioned by the Swedish Private Equity & Venture Capital Association, we find that PE boosts productivity by 22% of the companies they invest in.

Flash Glucose Monitors are medical devices that help people with diabetes monitor their blood sugar. The devices offer people with diabetes an alternative to the conventional finger pricking method.
Academic research suggests that using a flash glucose monitor can reduce the risk of harmful and unpleasant complications from diabetes, such as hypoglycaemia and late-stage complications, leading to lower use of healthcare services and improved labour market participation for the users of flash glucose monitors. Due to these positive effects, the societal net costs of offering flash glucose monitors to patients are significantly lower than the purchasing cost of the monitors.

Climate and sustainability potentials, barriers to growth, and Danish strongholds
Biotechnological climate solutions, or bio solutions, are important enablers for the decarbonisation of processes in industries that are otherwise difficult to decarbonise.
Certain bio solutions can be used to increase the yield of agriculture, reduce land use, provide alternative sources of protein for food, lower demand for plastic and pesticides, prevent food waste, and improve biodiversity, food supply, and food security.
However, the deployment of these bio solutions is being held back by a wide range of barriers. The absence of CO2 pricing and an outdated regulatory system are inhibiting several mature technologies ready for large-scale deployment.
The Alliance for Bio Solutions under the Danish Chamber of Commerce has commissioned Copenhagen Economics to analyse how bio solutions can help industries and households in their decarbonisation. An important part is not only to assess the impact of bio solutions on greenhouse gas emissions or the substitution of materials, but also the cost of these bio solutions relative to their alternatives and the framework conditions required to secure the uptake of these solutions.
1. The global potentials of bio solutions.
2. Barriers that bio solutions face and policy recommendations for improved framework conditions.
3. The future market opportunities for the Danish bio solutions industry.
