Sustainable living

Traditionally, the Border Triangle and the region around FlensburgAabenraa and Sønderborg are characterised by a holistic modern food industry system. This overall system with a relatively high concentration on the food industry along the German-Danish border and on the Baltic Sea has a positive impact on the transport-intensive sector.

The modern food industry has long been an integral part of the region. At the same time, this high-revenue sector has many points of contact to other sectors whose know-how it uses. These include the entire science-intensive healthcare sector and the service-intensive logistics industry.

The modern food industry’s strength is not reflected merely in its economic performance. Companies in the Border Triangle also concentrate on operating in an environmentally-friendly way to ensure healthy and sustainable conditions for people and nature – in the region and beyond its borders.
