Barely had the Dan Jørgensen (S) had set itself to the right as environment minister, before he took a showdown with the former bourgeois government policy in the area of supply.
Now it was other - green - buns on the soup.
- We are facing a big challenge and has set a target that is so ambitious that it must permeate all the work we are doing. And it comes also in the things that come to attach themselves to the utilities sector. There will be more Concito, the green think tank, ed.) and less McKinsey, said Dan Jørgensen in an interview with The parliament house in august 2019.
The last part of the sentence was not plucked out of the blue.
Dan Jørgensen could refer to, that the previous government's supply strategy, among other things, based on 234 pages long consultancy report from McKinsey.
But by now Dan Jørgensen harsh criticism for central elements in his recent proposal on waste is picked up from the same McKinsey report).
- the climate minister has opened Lars Christian Lilleholts (former environment minister for the (V) the drawer, found a McKinsey report and have put some green paper around it, saith the Unity klimaordfører, Mai Villadsen.
- the McKinsey report was about how you could save a lot of money by opening the utilities, so I do not think that it belongs right at home in an agreement that the climate minister sits as chair of the.
- I'm annoyed with, that he could see the problem in 2019, but no longer in 2020, she says.

Under the current affaldsforhandlinger Dan Jørgensen put up to, to the municipal monopoly in this area must be repealed. There must be more competition, and a key part of the discussion - which has sent the minister of the massive headwind - is the incinerators.
Dan Jørgensen will have that much less waste is incinerated in the future. In this context, he proposes a liberalisation and a possible privatisation - incineration plants must be transformed into joint stock companies and compete against each other. In the long term, the least efficient shut down.
In the McKinsey report, you can find the same type of recommendations:
’to Complete the full competition of the incineration of waste,' says.
According to McKinsey, a 'competition, where the waste is given freely and can be sent to the facility, which is willing to provide the best price, ( ... ), create a constraint, as incentiverer cost-effectiveness.'
At SF believe klimaordfører Signe Munk, Dan Jørgensen, has been controlling too much of the report, otherwise he even was out with the rake after.
- the Social democrats, was found in the al for much inspiration in the McKinsey report on supply chain strategy, where the efficiency improvement and privatisation is the most important, and so drops all other considerations - including climate impacts - by the side of.
- It has served as a guiding principle in the proposal on waste, which is the process of liberalisation and privatiseringstanker behind rather than a fundamental focus on, that the agreement benefits the climate., she says.
Ekstra Bladet has tried, in vain, an interview with Dan Jørgensen about the McKinsey-criticism. Instead, the climate minister sent the following written quotation:
'With our proposal for a completely climate-neutral affaldssektor in 2030, with less incineration and more recycling, there is no way to talk about, that we copy a report from McKinsey. We have identified competition as one of the elements in our package. We have not proposed a tvangsprivatisering. The criticism is completely misguided, and I understand the honestly don't. We have gone to the negotiating table with the ambition to boost the green transition of the waste sector, which has been quite quiet for the past 20 years. It requires that we lowers the combustion and stops the import of foreign waste to odie it in Denmark.'
'moreover, several experts in recent years pointed to competition as a tool that can reduce the capacity of forbrændingssektoren. And so we must remember that it is quite common that companies have the ability to handle the municipal tasks. In many municipalities, for instance, it is companies, which are responsible for the cleaning in the kindergartens or providing food in our care for the elderly. More competition is not a tvangsprivatisering. It is rather to find a solution, where the climate wins. And we like to listen to all the good suggestions that sets the climate in the centre and helps to lower the combustion of the plastic waste,'says Dan Jørgensen.

On the basis of a forhandlingsnotat can Ekstra Bladet can reveal that Dan Jørgensen aims to break the local government monopoly on waste management. The treatment of the recyclable waste should be sent in the offer, and the incinerators need to be converted to joint stock companies, which are competing against each other.
With its waste-move is Dan Jørgensen gone contrary to the warnings from the mayors of the country's six largest cities - which are five, the minister's party colleagues. It can Extra Magazine reveal, on the basis of a letter by the six mayors sent to Dan Jorgensen back in January.
The internal rebellion is spreading. Extra Leaf can report on another letter, where the mayors go in the right with Dan Jørgensen's gambit. Including the minister's party colleagues Steen Christiansen from Albertslund and Ole Bondo Christensen from The Municipality.
the Attacks continue. In a new internal letter, which raises criticism of Dan Jørgensen's waste initiatives facing the two socialist mayors Allan S. Andersen from Copenhagen and Helle Moesgaard Adelborg from Hvidovre as co-sponsors. Later returned Kommunernes Landsforening (KL) reported also in the chorus of critics.
Dan Jørgensen has not immediately going to give in to the criticism. In each Extra Leaf to reveal an outline of the agreement from the minister, where he holds real in several of the reviled elements from waste proposal.
Unity has throughout been highly critical of Dan Jørgensen waste plan. Now sharpens Pernille Skipper rhetoric: - What the implications will be, we can't know yet. But it can be a serious matter for the climate minister, she says. Also SF criticises open Dan Jørgensen's waste plan.
