Lykke Friis joins Thylander’s board

Former Danish Minister of Climate, Energy and Gender Equality, Lykke Friis, adds significant new competencies to Thylander

Lykke Friis is currently the director of Think Tank Europa and former Minister of Climate, Energy and Gender Equality in Denmark as well as patron at the University of Copenhagen. In addition, she has previously worked as head of European policy at the Confederation of Danish Industry and served on the boards of Velux and Vestas.

Chairman of the Board Lars Thylander states: “I am obviously very excited that Lykke Friis has agreed to join our board. We are extremely conscious of developing a company that is more diverse than what many associate with the real estate industry. Lykke adds a unique insight into climate, ESG and other areas that we can benefit from.”

Lykke Friis looks forward to the board work at Thylander: “I look forward to working further with one of the most important climate challenges at Thylander. As is well known, buildings account for 40 per cent of the world’s CO2 emissions. Equally clear is that real estate plays a crucial role in the life of the individual. Just think about how much time we all spend inside our buildings.” She continues: “If you want to make a change, it is important to get involved where it matters, and the built environment is one of the areas with the greatest potential. I am therefore looking forward to raising the agenda of one of the most leading and progressive companies in the Danish real estate industry.”

“I am very pleased that we have been able to attract a capacity like Lykke Friis and I look forward to the cooperation in our strong board,” concludes Lars Thylander.

After joining, the Board of Directors at Thylander consist of: Lars Thylander (Chairman), Lykke Friis, Jørgen Rugholm, Peter Reedtz, Per H. Jensen and Per Klitgård.
